Alabama AG opposes possible medical marijuana legislation

With an expected medical marijuana proposal approaching next month, Alabama Attorney General Steve Marshall has already objected to putting it into law.

In the Jan. 6 letter to lawmakers, he expressed concerns including parallels with the opioid crisis and the continued federal marijuana ban.
Similar legislation failed to pass last year. This year, a state study commission has recommended a new program.
According to the National Conference of State Legislatures, over 30 states have approved some form of medical marijuana proposal.
