Alabama Medical Cannabis Commission Awards New Licenses

Medical Cannabis

In a significant development, the Alabama Medical Cannabis Commission (AMCC) has voided all previously awarded licenses and voted on new ones. The decision, made during a meeting on August 10, 2023, comes after a thorough review process. Let’s delve into the details of this pivotal moment in Alabama’s medical cannabis journey.

The Background

The AMCC initially awarded licenses on June 12, 2023, but due to potential inconsistencies in scoring data, they decided to stay all proceedings related to the licenses. The University of South Alabama (USA) played a crucial role in coordinating the application review process, engaging evaluators to assess the scored exhibit items for all 90 applicants. However, discrepancies prompted a comprehensive review, including external validation by KPMG, a renowned accounting firm.
