Alabama Sen. Tim Melson (R-Florence) plans to reintroduce a medical cannabis legalization bill this year, according to an Alabama Public Radio report.

Medical cannabis legislation passed the Alabama Senate during the 2020 session, but failed to clear the House.

Melson’s bill would create a new board, the Alabama Medical Cannabis Commission, to license and regulate the industry, Alabama Public Radio reported.

Currently, only industrial hemp is legal in the state.
