BIRMINGHAM, AL – In a bid to kickstart the state’s burgeoning medical marijuana industry, Alabama regulators have issued a fresh batch of licenses, marking the second such issuance this summer.
According to MJBizDaily, The Alabama Medical Cannabis Commission made its initial selection of 21 medical marijuana enterprises for licensing back in June. Nonetheless, those licenses faced an unprecedented setback and were declared null and void last Thursday.
Consequently, 24 new licenses have now been issued. Surprisingly, 19 of these permits were granted to establishments previously shortlisted in June.
The licenses encompass a range of categories, with seven Cultivator licenses, four Processor permits, four Dispensary licenses, three Transportation permits, one Testing Lab license, and an additional five Integrated Facility permits that facilitate vertical integration for businesses.
An overall total of 90 companies applied for licenses.
