Alabama Awards Medical Cannabis Licenses for Third Time This Year

Alabama medical cannabis regulators have finally awarded 20 industry licenses. It is the third time this year the commission has awarded licenses — the previous two attempts were negated by claims of incorrect application scoring, and multiple lawsuits.

Full story after the jump.

The Alabama Medical Cannabis Commission (AMCC) last week awarded 20 medical cannabis industry licenses, Alabama Daily News reports. It is the third time this year the commission has awarded licenses – the previous two attempts were negated by claims of incorrect application scoring and lawsuits that alleged the AMCC violated the state’s Open Meetings Law and had no right to revoke the originally awarded licenses in the first place.   

During this round of licensing, license hopefuls gave presentations to the AMCC directly. Commission member William Saliski noted that the presentations were influential in helping the AMCC rank the applicants.   

“I have to say that some of the top people that are on this list had some of the most sensational presentations, and I’m so encouraged by their readiness. I think they could probably start growing plants tomorrow if we asked them.” — Saliski via Alabama Daily News
