Two medical cannabis companies that have filed suit against the Alabama Medical Cannabis Commission appear to believe that the AMCC commissioners and/or staff conspired with one or more applicant companies to improperly influence the licensing process, according to a legal filing submitted in the case.

The filing, which was submitted by Insa Alabama and Alabama Always in their joint lawsuit against the AMCC, lays out numerous questions the companies want the AMCC to answer and lists documents and materials that it wants the AMCC to produce.

That production would come in response to an order issued by Montgomery County Circuit Court Judge James Anderson, who ruled last week that the licensing process for integrated facilities should be stalled again and that the plaintiff companies had a right to depose six individuals and make numerous requests for documents and submit several interrogatories that must be answered.

The AMCC has requested that Anderson revisit that decision, arguing that the order doesn’t align with the legal process for open meetings claims. Anderson also set a hearing date to address the AMCC’s claims – which included a threat to appeal the judge’s decision.
