ATLANTA (AP) — Georgia has opened the application process for businesses who want to manufacture cannabis oil for medical use in the state.

The General Assembly legalized the treatment for a limited number of conditions five years ago, and the Georgia Access to Medical Cannabis Commission has now approved the process that would allow roughly 14,000 registered patients to receive it, The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.

The application, accessible via the group’s website, must be received by 2 p.m. on Dec. 28.
