A panel which had been officially created by the legislature of Alabama has been recommending that the state must legalize the medical marijuana. Among the 18 members of the commission of Medical Cannabis Study, 12 members on Friday had voted to support the bill which is going to establish the program of medical cannabis for the patients who qualify. Three of the members had voted against the recommendation while there were three who had opted for abstaining.
The panel had been established earlier in the year after their Senate had approved one bill in May which would legalize it for the purposes of therapy. However the legislation had been watered down for simply creating the study commission after it was evident that there had been no path to the passage for broader proposal in the House.
A report which had been released from the panel has said that the Members of the Study Commission brought the different perspectives to this group and the conditions along with the use in general of marijuana which is a broader topic. As per the presentations and the discussions, the commission has found that although a few of the results were inconclusive and a few had mixed results, there is a lot of evidence scientifically that both marijuana and hemp have compounds which may provide major relief for the symptoms of a particular specified condition.
The bill which had been approved by the study committee has called for creating a commission which is going to be responsible for the licensing businesses and the tracking of the medical cannabis system from the beginning to end. For the state, the lawmakers who had given their opinion for medical cannabis program its momentum which is going to work in their favor.
