The University of South Alabama is recruiting people to evaluate applications for medical cannabis business licenses in the state.
In 2021 the Alabama Legislature passed a bill laying out a framework for medical cannabis production, sale, and use in the state. It authorizes medical cannabis as a treatment for a specific list of illnesses, mostly in cases where it is shown that conventional treatments have failed. It also requires products to be produced and processed within the state.
The law established the Alabama Medical Cannabis Commission, a 14-member board that will “administer and enforce the laws and rules relating to medical cannabis.” In September, the commission began accepting applications for related business licenses, receiving 179 applications in the first six days.
According to information released by the University of South Alabama, the commission has engaged the university to help evaluate those applications.
