US (AL): MMJ products expected late this year or early next year

Licensed cultivators could start growing marijuana for Alabama’s new medical cannabis industry in greenhouses or warehouses before the end of the summer.

The Alabama Medical Cannabis Commission will issue licenses to as many as 17 companies to raise the plants, which will be grown in enclosed facilities with round-the-clock video monitoring and tight security.

AMCC board member Rex Vaughn said experts have told him it will take about 14 weeks for plants to be ready for processing to make pills, capsules, gelatinous cubes, oils, patches, and other products. Those could be available to eligible patients in Alabama dispensaries by as early as October or November, Vaughn said.

“That’s kind of what our game plan has been,” Vaughn said. “That will put us mid-fall trying to get products available. That’s what we’re hoping for.“ AMCC Assistant Director Daniel Autrey said he was reluctant to speculate but said early next year is probably a good estimate for product availability.
