Food Desert

There is an area just south of Milledgeville that is classified as an “urban food desert,” where at least 20% of households are under the poverty line and at least a third are more than a mile away from the nearest grocery store.  GC 360 reporter Jesper Hagel interviewed some of those affected by the “food desert.”

Medical marijuana is now legal in Georgia; however, patients still have to purchase the drug out of state, which brings up some new complications. What else is important to know about this new law? GC 360 reporter Hillary Hunnings set out to learn more.
