Great news! The Alabama House of Representatives just passed medical cannabis in a 68-34-1 vote. The bill already passed the Senate (20-10), but because it was amended in the House, the two versions need to be reconciled before it can head to Gov. Ivey.
Although it has passed the Senate three years in a row, this is the first time the House of Representatives has ever passed medical cannabis legislation.
You can check out our summary of the bill here.
Please take a few minutes to ask Gov. Kay Ivey to sign SB 46 into law if it lands on her desk. Here are some talking points you can use:
Patients with cancer, multiple sclerosis, intractable pain, and other terrible medical conditions deserve our compassion and mercy.
Some of our suffering neighbors with chronic medical conditions find that prescription medicines simply do not work for them. Their cancer wasting, seizures, pain, and spasms simply have not responded to available treatments.
If a suffering patient’s physician recommends medical cannabis, Alabama law should not stand in the way.
Then, spread the news with other compassionate Alabamians.
