The Alabama Medical Cannabis Commission (AMCC) canceled an upcoming meeting scheduled for Tuesday as attorneys for the commission and companies who didn’t receive a license in August continue to negotiate on a path forward for getting the new industry up and running in the state.

The announcement was posted on the AMCC’s site on Friday afternoon. 

“Productive dialogue between counsel for the AMCC and litigants continued Friday, September 15. However, those discussions have not yielded any business that the Commission needs to consider at this time. As such, the Commission meeting scheduled for Tuesday, September 19, at 1:00 p.m. is canceled. This will allow all parties the opportunity to continue with ongoing discussions. The next Commission meeting is scheduled for Thursday, October 12 at 1:00 p.m,” the AMCC announcement stated.

AMCC recently put a stay on their proceedings and is defending against a lawsuit filed by companies who weren’t awarded licenses on August 10 over alleged Open Meetings Act violations.
