Yellowhammer Medical Dispensaries and Statewide Property Holdings AL were the only two companies awarded a license in the second round of awards but weren't selected on Friday. The AMCC also awarded Enchanted Green a processing license and Blackberry Farms a cultivator license during the second round of awards, but those companies weren't selected on Friday.

"The presentations we received from applicants this week were insightful and allowed Commission members to ask questions about the contents and merits of their application," Commission Chairman Rex Vaughn said. "We received applications and presentations from applicants who would make terrific licensees, which made our job of selecting a limited number of them challenging. However, I trust this Commission's wisdom and discretion in selecting the best applicants to serve as licensees in Alabama's newest industry."

The Commission will receive presentations from integrated facility applicants beginning on Tuesday and award such licenses on December 12.

Under the rules passed by the Alabama Board of Medical Examiners, physicians may begin the certification process to recommend medical cannabis to patients after business licenses have been issued. For a patient to qualify for medical cannabis, the patient must have at least one of the qualifying conditions and be recommended for medical cannabis by a certified physician.
