After a shaky initial rollout, Alabama has hit the reset button on its emerging medical cannabis market.
The state has voided all licenses that were previously awarded and plans to hear presentations from applicants.
Starting later this month, Alabama will let Cultivator, State Testing Laboratory, Secure Transporter, Processor, Dispensary and Integrated Facility applicants make their presentations.
Alabama Medical Cannabis Commission Chairman Rex Vaughn called it an aggressive timeline.
Alabama’s new cannabis licensing process comes after several applicants took issue with the state’s original approach to awarding licenses.
One lawsuit filed against the Alabama Cannabis Commission said the body passed its duties on to third parties and relied “blindly” on information provided by those third parties.
