Recommending Cannabis in Alabama

Originally, only UAB physicians from the Department of Neurology may write prescriptions for CBD oil under SB 174. However, that section of the law was repealed by HB 61 and now any licensed physician in Alabama may diagnose patients as having eligible conditions long as the patient and doctor are in a bona fide relationship. A “bona fide relationship” is defined as “A relationship in which a physician has ongoing responsibility for the assessment, care, and treatment of a patient's medical condition.”
