Gov. Brian Kemp on Wednesday signed into law a bill to grow and sell medical marijuana in Georgia, a milestone for patients who are allowed to use the drug but had no way to buy it.

People diagnosed with Alzheimer’s face bleak prospects. There’s no cure, and no effective treatment for the symptoms that often accompany memory loss -- delusions, and even hallucinations, that can make patients agitated or aggressive.

“Our constitution recognizes that marijuana is medicine, and if it is in our constitution then companies that provide health insurance to Florida patients should be covering it,” said the state's Agriculture Commissioner.

Symptoms such as pain and nausea improved in cancer patients who took cannabis, according to new research that is part of Minnesota’s effort to address the information void about whether marijuana offers medical benefits.

“If people knew the healing power of cannabis, everyone would be growing it in their patios,” says a patient who has found relief from pain.

On World Autism Awareness Day, Governor Jared Polis signed a bill that expands medical marijuana use.
