The Alabama Senate is working on a bill to allow medical marijuana to be prescribed by a doctor for patients in need. After a full medical evaluation, the patient is put into one of three classes of a marijuana prescription ranging from being able to purchase five ounces, all the way up to sixteen ounces of medical pot per month. The state will also regulate the amount of dispensaries allowed per city based on population.
“There are doctors that want to prescribe marijuana for their patients because it works,” Singleton said in a written statement last week. “It just makes sense to let them.”
