GABRI was one of 69 applicants to apply for GA’s Medical Cannabis licenses. The GABRI team was able to meet & exceed almost every scoring category outlined by Georgia Medical Cannabis Commission (GMCC). Although GABRI was not initially selected for one of the 6 licenses, GABRI will work tirelessly to earn a Cultivation/Dispensing license from the state. GABRI believes that Georgians should be taking care of GA’s patients, not companies from out of state who were intimately involved with felons in FL during their application/license process.
TIFTON, Ga. — GA BIOSCIENCE RESEARCH INC (GABRI) has been granted an Emergency Motion for Stay pursuant to O.C.G.A 50-13-19(d)(1). The Georgia Medical Cannabis Commission (GMCC) awarded two Class 1 licenses on Wednesday, Sept. 21, 2022. Since then, numerous courts around the state have Stayed both Class 1 & Class 2 licenses from being awarded which now stops those companies from going any further towards their production of medical cannabis.
