Alabama's medical marijuana bill may not be dead after all
Published on Apr 27, 2015
Sen. Waggoner of Alabama recently received dozens of calls and emails from concerned medical marijuana advocates, convincing him that the topic should atleast be up for debate. Waggoner and other Senators do not inted to be swayed by any debate and continue to oppose marijuana. Some bring concerns that this medical marijuana bill is just too broad and would create recreational marijuana which many of the legislators highly oppose.
"The bill that is before us opens the door way wider than just medical marijuana," the rules committee member told AL.com today.
The 25 medical conditions outlined in the bill "are pretty broad in scope," he said, and would cause for misuse of the drug. Pittman said he came to that conclusion after speaking with physicians and with colleagues in the Senate.
