Alabama Voids Medical Marijuana Licenses, Issues 24 New Licenses

In June the Alabama Medical Cannabis Commission announced the 21 companies selected to receive medical marijuana licenses. Now the state has voided those licenses before they were officially issued, while announcing the issuance of a new batch of licenses.

The Commission announced that they are issuing licenses to 24 companies, including seven cultivators (three more than in June). Of the 24 licenses, 19 were part of the original batch awarded licenses in June.

Commission Chair Rex Vaughn says he’s hopeful that dispensaries could be open by the end of the year, saying “I think it’s still realistic we can get there but that also depends on litigation that we may have in front of us and we can’t foresee that. But right now we have the green light to move forward and we’re very thankful that we’re in this place and we had today to regroup.”

Vaughn say “That’s more or less what we’ve done today, is regrouped from where we were two months ago.”
