Important Application Dates for Alabama Medical Marijuana Licensing

Timeline Overview:

In early July, the Alabama Medical Cannabis Commission released this timeline for starting the license application process and awarding medical marijuana licenses.

The process begins on September 1, 2022, and the first licenses will be issued in July 2023.


One Notable Difference in the Alabama Licensing Process:

Alabama's license process includes the unique step of requesting an application before the release date.

Anyone who intends to apply for a license must submit a request form between September 1 and October 17, 2022.

Then, the State will distribute the actual license application to those who made the request by the deadline. License applications will be sent to requesters in late October and will be due on December 30, 2022.
