We have just found out that HB-550, the Alabama Cannabis and Hemp Reform Act of 2013, will be receiving a hearing in the Alabama House Committee on Public Safety and Homeland Security tomorrow at 11 a.m.
Just a few days after Chairman Hammon said that the bill would not receive a hearing… The bill is receiving a hearing!
This is an important piece of legislation that removes the criminal penalties for the possession of marijuana. At the same time, the bill would create about 5000 new jobs and estimates show that bill would create $1 billion in revenue for the state of Alabama.
If you are able, I urge you to join Alabama Safe Access Project at the Statehouse tomorrow.
