The Alabama Cannabis Industry Association announced on Saturday that it has rescheduled its inaugural Alabama Medical Cannabis Conference from July 14-15 to October 13-14. This was largely due to the unexpected news that the Alabama Medical Cannabis Commission (AMCC) has stayed the awarding of Alabama Medical Cannabis licenses pending an outside review of the applications. A court has also stayed the final license awards.

Chey Garrigan is the founder and President of the Alabama Medical Cannabis Industry Association.

“We would like to inform you that the Inaugural Alabama Medical Cannabis Conference, originally scheduled for July 14-15, will be rescheduled to October 13-14,” Garrigan said. “We are excited to bring you an even more impactful event that aligns with the progress of the state’s medical cannabis program. In light of recent developments and the postponement of license issuance by the Alabama Medical Cannabis Commission, we believe it is essential to ensure that the status of the state program is at a point where we can make significant contributions to the industry during the conference.

“We have taken into consideration the feedback and concerns raised by our members and participants, and we want to provide you with the most valuable and meaningful experience possible,” said Garrigan. “By rescheduling the conference, we aim to create an environment where we can delve deeper into the latest insights, strategies, and opportunities in the ever-evolving cannabis industry.”
