SPRINGFIELD, GA (WTOC) -
A bill to legalize medical marijuana in
Georgia could go before state legislators as early as this week.
It's news one Springfield mother has been
waiting to hear.
"Just a little bit of normalcy of life
for my child," said Nicole Rahn.

families with very serious situations involving their children. I know the
possibility of the general assembly beginning the hearings process has gained
The Rahn's truly believe having medical
marijuana available could give them the relief and answers to the questions
they constantly have.
"For 12 year's, I've known a child
through drugs and and seizures and maybe I could know my child as just my child,
as what the Lord gave me, as a gift, not all the medicines and struggles she
goes through daily," she said. "A day without a seizure would be
