Bradley attorney Whitt Steineker was quoted in Marijuana Business Daily on the possibility of Alabama legalizing medical marijuana through its legislatures this year. Medical cannabis bills passed one chamber in Alabama last year and might have crossed the finish line if it weren’t for the coronavirus pandemic shutdowns. Mississippi voters approved a business-friendly MMJ initiative, which makes it even more likely that neighboring Alabama will legalize it.
“I thought it had a better than even chance last year before the pandemic,” said Steineker. “I think that’s only been strengthened by the budget issues that everyone is facing, and maybe even more importantly for Alabama is Mississippi.”
