US (AL): MMJ availability may take longer than expected

The chairman of the board that will oversee Alabama’s new medical cannabis industry expressed concern Wednesday that the timeline for making medical cannabis treatment available may be slower than expected.

Alabama’s 14-member Medical Cannabis Commission held its first meeting on Wednesday afternoon in Montgomery.

Dr. Steven Stokes of Dothan, chairman of the commission, tried to establish a timeline for how soon treatment with medical cannabis will be available in Alabama.

“I was hoping next spring,” Stokes said. Patrick Moody, deputy commissioner of the Alabama Department of Agriculture, said that he didn’t expect licenses for medical cannabis growers could be issued before Sept. 1, 2022.
