In May 2016 Governor Bentley signed Leni’s Law, a limited low THC oil law that exempts certain people from prosecution should they be found in possession of what the state defines as Cannabidiol (CBD).
Who can possess cannabis oil in Alabama?
Leni’s Law very loosely defined who was eligible to possess CBD or low THC oil as someone who has a DEBILITATING MEDICAL CONDITION or who is the parent or legal guardian of a minor who has a debilitating medical condition. A Debilitating Medical Condition is defined as “A chronic or debilitating disease or medical condition including one that produces seizures for which a person is under treatment”.
What kind of CBD oil is allowed in Alabama?
It appears that most types of cannabis oil with THC levels below 3% (AND they must have independent lab results) will be legal for qualified Alabama patients. Leni’s Law refers to cannabis oil simply as Cannabidiol (CBD), and defines it as:
A (nonpsychoactive) cannabinoid found in the plant Cannabis sativa L. or any other preparation thereof that is free from plant material, and has a THC level (delta-9-tetrahydrocannibinol) of no more than three percent relative to CBD according to the rules adopted by the Alabama Department of Forensic Sciences.
