    This is Alabama's policy, so much so that I copy and pasted this from a flyer they sent out to citizens through Nextdoor.com where I saw it. We do have more than plenty pain clinics, and doc in the boxes that will write you narcotic prescriptions though

    "CBD Oil Facts from Shelby Compact 2020
    CBD Oil has been in the news lately. Therefore, the Shelby County Drug Enforcement Task Force has created this fact sheet to help answer questions that you may have concerning CBD Oil and its use in Alabama.

    Quick facts about CBD oil Question: Is it legal? Answer: No it is not.
    CBD Oil (cannabidiol) is a derivative of the cannabis plant Question: The store clerk and the Internet both say that it is derived from hemp, not marijuana and is therefore legal. Is it true? Answer: No, it is not true.
    Hemp uses seeds and fibers from the cannabis plant's stalk and contains lower levels of THC and high levels of cannabidiol (CBD). Nonetheless, there is indeed the presence of THC and the CBD product will test positive for marijuana.
    Many companies selling CBD oil claim it's derived from industrial hemp and is therefore legal. It is not. 
    Hemp was made illegal to grow without a permit in the U.S. under the Controlled Substances Act passed in 1970 because of its relation to marijuana, and any imported hemp products must meet a zero tolerance level. Some states have made the cultivation of industrial hemp legal, but farmers in many states have not yet begun to grow it because of resistance from the federal Drug Enforcement Administration  The federal government classifies anything that comes from the marijuana plant, including CBD, as a schedule 1 controlled substance, like heroin or LSD, it is illegal at the federal level.

    Question: What about Carley’s Law and then Leni’s Law. They made CBD legal in Alabama. Answer: Not for everyone
    Carly's Law only applies to individuals with a debilitating epileptic condition who possess a prescription authorized by the University of Alabama-Birmingham, and the oil can only contain 3 percent tetrahydrocannabinol (THC).
    Leni's Law applies to people with a debilitating illness that is specifically diagnosed by a doctor, and the oil can only contain up to 3 percent THC. According to the Alabama Attorney General’s Office, “The possession, use, sale and distribution of CBD oil is illegal according to Alabama law. The narrow exception under Alabama law allows a person to only use or possess CBD oil to treat a chronic or debilitating disease or medical condition diagnosed by a doctor.”
    This includes CBD in any shape, form, or fashion
    E-cig or Vape Oil  Massage creams  Edibles  Baking products  CBD dog treats "


    I don't know anyone who has gotten a prescription under the two provisions, and I imagine most Alabama doctors don't want to risk their ass doing so.

    I wonder how much Jeff Sessions has to do with that? Being an anti-marijuana, pro tobacco shill, I would assume tons.

    I'd agree he's a huge part of it whether directly involved, or part of a group think anti freedom coalition of politicians that have existed in this Alabama as long as I've been alive.

    While Georgia kids get to go to State schools on scholarship due to the lottery, Alabama politicians always vote no. Now Georgia, and Alabama residents can't be that different culturally. In the past I heard many rumors that former crook Gov. Bentley took either campaign donations or bribes in order to ensure Alabama didn't pass pro gambling legislation that would cut back on the flow of Alabama citizens to Biloxi, Tupelo, etc.

    Sadly Alabama isn't high on the list of best States for exercising freedom. It's just been within the last decade that we finally passed the law to allow SBRs.

    It can't be to long before this whole thing gets settled once and for all when we Federally legalize it's use at the minimum on a medical level, and then perhaps leave it up to individual State's rights to make it legal for rec. or not.
