It's not "medical marijuana".  It's a particular oil extracted from one specific variety of marijuana that can be dispensed only at UAB for clinical trial purposes to asses it as a treatment for a particularly bad seizure disorder in children.  For what it's intended to treat it's supposed to be great but don't think anyone gets to light up just because their podiatrist writes a prescription.

According to my brother, there are drug abuse councilors in Alabama pushing for Colorado style legalization in Alabama as they think it will reduce Meth usage.
 
2014-03-21 11:50:30 AM
The measure makes it legal to possess only a prescribed medical grade extract known as CBD or cannabidiol, which is non-intoxicating.

A bit early to be breaking out the bongs folks.

It's only CBD extracts; so basically a gift to companies that can afford to process and package it.

Good.

A similar measure will be on Florida's ballot in November. I hope Florida Farkers will come through. A few moments in the voting booth could mean happier days for a lot of chronically ill Floridians.
 
2014-03-21 11:53:42 AM
Not really, it's cannabidiol...still OK to throw brown people in jail for feeling good, which is what is really important in Alabama.
 
2014-03-21 11:53:53 AM
CBD=/=Medical Marijuana.
 
2014-03-21 11:56:04 AM
uh no, it's some insanely restrictive law where nobody will actually be able to get the legal substance.

But its a state recognizing that marijuana (in specific, one of its extracts) has a medical use. Its not free joints for everyone, but its certainly another blow to the federal schedule I classification.

Well, as long as small Farkers can find an excuse to bash Alabama in this otherwise positive outcome, all is right with the universe.

Perhaps it is not the bill passage, but our perception of the bill passage that is indeed trippy.

That's not much of a legalization of marijuana, this is more of what I'd expect in the bible belt.

I didn't know you could do that.  I'm not a fan of THC, but some pure CBD would be nice after a hard workout or a long day skiing.  How much does it cost? Administered by vape-pen?  (I live in Colorado)

Old politicians, the older folks that elect them and law enforcement have a huge emotional investment in pot prohibition.

It's one of the things that separates those consider themselves the wise old sages that fought in WW2 from the impetuousness of impulsive youth.  Repealing the laws are like insulting their mothers, or worse, their deity.

My father-in-law is one of these old-school types. Constantly bleats about "those kids" and "crime is out of control".  And of course he eagerly votes for the politicians that pander to his (false) concerns..

The only bright spot is the older generation are rapidly dying off.

I think the biggest shock on that chart is 'sexual behaviors' kill more people than all the drug deaths combined.

I'd really like to know what those behaviors are. I mean I know one is the asphyxiation, but I don't think 20K people are dropping from that.

PaulRB: OK, game over anti-pot nitwits - if Alabama is making pot legal, then the whole country might as well.  (George Wallace is spinning as we speak)


This is far from legalizing pot.  This is one, non-intoxicating form of non-smokable, medicinal pot that you can only get from a single (government funded) source for a specific, narrow set of medical conditions.

The biggest opponents of this legislation in Alabama were the pro-pot crowd because the idea of non-intoxicating, non-smokable medical marijuana works against their agenda.  This legislation didn't go far enough for them because is doesn't allow docs to write scripts for anyone to smoke up because they have "glaucoma."

Makes more sense, considering it was 100% vote for this bill.  However, it's a foot in the door. (a step in the right direction)  BTW, I used to live in Alabama in the 70s (when George Wallace was still alive).  And, yes, there were pot smokers in my high school at the time.  Time to stop tilting at windmills, Alabama!

Their agenda being cannabis is good for a wide variety of ailments and it is a harmless plant so worth trying to alleviate symptoms.

slave2grind: One step closer...


Nope. Because the next time someone tries to pass a real medical or recreational bill, they'll say No, we already have this medical grade extract known as CBD or cannabidiol, which is non-intoxicating. So there's no need for your hippie weed. That's the end of the line for Alabama for a long time.

APPLAUSE!!

I was diagnosed with epilepsy in 1987; but, the seizures started around 1985.  I wasn't diagnosed with a seizure disorder because I had the seizures primarily while I sleeping and I usually smoked something that put me to sleep.

//The marijuana was keeping my brain in line.
//Also helped me as a college student.
//Stopped smoking when I got a new boyfriend.

Tennessee really should be next to go Full Legal. We just legalized the sale of wine in normal grocery stores with an overwhelming majority vote, and when the governor threatened to veto a counter threat was made to hold a special veto-canceling vote. The Governor backed down and signed the bill. Yep, that is how bad we want to destroy the Liquor Store monopoly. Now we need to go Full Legal on weed and hop on the tax bandwagon.

Perhaps.  So why wouldn't proponents of medical marijuana back a bill that legalized a specific application of medical marijuana?  The fact that the application in question is non-intoxicating makes me suspicious.

naming a law after a small child is a great strategy. MML in Alabama is called Carly's law
