6/3/2019 Group Watch: Medical Marijuana Commission Coming

The efforts to legalize medical marijuana in Alabama got watered down by the end of the session, and the bill that finally passed simply calls for the formation of a study commission that will explore the issue and report back to lawmakers with policy recommendations at the end of this year. The commission will include at least four doctors, including an oncologist, an agriculture expert, a pharmacist and a mental health and/or substance abuse expert. The commission will also hold three public hearings over the coming months to share information with the public and get input. Originally, the bill would have made medical marijuana available to people with multiple medical conditions, but it met too much opposition to make it out of the House
