Alabama does not currently have a medical marijuana program in place.
‘Carly’s Law’ was signed by Gov. Robert Bentley on Apr. 1, 2014. Named after three-year-old Carly Chandler, the law made Alabama the second state to legalize CBD oil. Alabama’s Senate voted unanimously to support SB 174 on Mar. 11, 2014.
Sponsored by Republican Sen. Paul Sanford, the bill calls for the University of Alabama to perform research into the efficacy of cannibidiol in the treatment of neurological conditions, including epilepsy. The university would only be allowed to prescribe the oil to approved patients.
