How to Get a Medical Marijuana Card in AL

  • STEP 1:

    BOOK AN APPOINTMENT

    When we're booking appointments in Alabama, you will schedule an appointment to see a medical marijuana doctor in AL through Veriheal at a time that is most convenient for you. Provide basic medical history and book your appointment with a licensed medical marijuana doctor. You will need medical records and the doctor(s) can approve any qualifying condition.

  • STEP 2:

    CONSULT WITH AN MMJ DOCTOR

    Consult with a doctor for 15 mins to evaluate your ailments, and ask any questions you may have about medical marijuana treatment. After the appointment is complete, the doctor will fill out a recommendation form for medical marijuana and approve you. Once you have this you can then use that to apply to the state.

  • STEP 3:

    GET APPROVED

    Once you are approved, you'll register with the state and submit an application. The state will process your application and notify you of your approval and mail your card. Once you have your card in hand, you can begin purchasing from dispensaries.

    In Alabama, patients will need to re-certify their license annually by seeing a licensed physician again. Veriheal will get in touch with you when your certification is approaching its expiration to help you setup a renewal consultation.

The Status of Cannabis Legalization in Alabama

Veriheal will be one of the first suppliers to begin approving patients for legal cannabis use when the medical marijuana program in Alabama as well as state-open dispensaries is accessible. Recreational cannabis in Alabama is still illegal, but for particular medical circumstances, CBD oil is permitted.

Previously, a prescription by a board-certified neurologist through the authority of the UAB Department of Neurology was the only way to acquire CBD legally. Patients diagnosed by a licensed neurologist with debilitating epileptic disorders may discuss using CBD oil as an alternative for therapy.

Since 1931, cannabis has been illegal for all reasons in Alabama. First-time ownership of private quantities is a crime of misdemeanor, but repeated ownership or possession with intent to sell is a crime. Efforts have been produced over the years to decrease or eliminate the related criminal sanctions.

Alabama enacted Carly’s law enabling CBD oil clinical trials authorized by the federal government to treat kids with seizure disorder in 2014. But in 2016, lawmakers in the state enacted SB347 as the Alabama Industrial Hemp Research Act, which altered the definition of marijuana in the controlled substance law to exclude industrial hemp, which was described as cannabis not containing by dry weight exceeding 0.3 percent THC. The lawmakers of the state adopted HB61, which became known as the law of Leni.

For a restricted range of circumstances, CBD oil is now accessible to medical marijuana patients across the country. Join the above Veriheal Tribe to get you exclusive offers now.

Possession and Cultivation

In Alabama, cultivation is illegal. A person who grows a marijuana plant for private use at home may be prosecuted for cannabis trafficking, which is deemed a crime.

Possessing any quantity of cannabis processed is regarded as a misdemeanor with a prison sentence of up to one (1) year or a fine of $6,000. Those suspected of having marijuana for purposes other than private use, such as distribution, may face a felony with a prison term of up to 10 years or a maximum fine of $15,000.
