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.
