Alabama Senate recently passed a bill to regulate the production, sales and use of medical marijuana. The legislation still needs to pass the House of Representatives to become law. It would allow doctors to recommend medical cannabis products for a broad range of conditions such as anxiety, nausea, chronic pain, and sleep disorders. It would create a Medical Cannabis Commission that would oversee a “seed-to-sale” system, issuing licenses for the cultivating, processing, dispensing, transporting, and testing of medical cannabis. The bill, called the Compassion Act, would make Alabama the 37th state to allow medical marijuana, according to the National Conference of State Legislatures.
The Senate has also passed the bill the last two years, but it has stalled in the House. Melson said the legislation this year is essentially the same as what the Senate passed last year.
