Alabama’s Medical Cannabis Bill Moves to the Governor’s Desk

Bradley Arant Boult Cummings LLP

We wrote yesterday that the Alabama House of Representatives voted 68-34 in favor of the medical cannabis bill. Late last night, the Senate concurred with the House’s version of the bill. The bill now moves out of the legislature and onto Gov. Kay Ivey’s desk.

We will continue to monitor this bill as Gov. Ivey takes it under consideration. Gov. Ivey has not issued any public statement regarding this bill, but in 2019 she signed the legislation that established the medical cannabis study commission that ultimately recommended the medical cannabis bill that the Alabama Legislature passed yesterday. Under Alabama law, and during the legislative session, the governor must sign or veto legislation within six days of transmittal or it becomes law without her signature. Thus, we may know whether the medical cannabis bill will become law by the end of next week.
