US (AL): "Over 566 medical cannabis license requests received, applications go out next week"

The deadline to request an application for a medical cannabis license in Alabama expired this week. Director of the Alabama Medical Cannabis Commission (AMCC) John McMillan said applications for licenses would be going out on October 24, along with guidelines on what the AMCC is looking for in a potential applicant.

"That's where folks are going to really find out what the evaluators are going to be looking at, and the point system and those kinds of things will be a part of that," McMillan said on Mobile radio FM Talk 106.5's "Midday Mobile" radio show.

Applicants will have until the end of the year to submit their forms, at which time evaluations will begin. "The University of South Alabama is going to be the lead entity working with other universities in the state and also with other experts in different fields of the license application to identify the very best qualified candidates that we possibly can to award licenses, probably next June," McMillan said.

He said applications might be evaluated differently depending on the type of licenses being applied for, such as a cultivator, transport, or dispenser. He said that's where the field experts come in. He gave the example of Auburn University's horticulture department potentially evaluating applications for cultivator licenses.
