Cannabis Coming to Cullman? Commission Paves Way for Local Farm to Apply for Medical Licensing
CULLMAN, Ala. – The Cullman County Commission on Tuesday evening approved Resolution 2022-61, authorizing the operation of medical cannabis dispensing sites within unincorporated areas of the county.
Cullman is located along Interstate 65, about 50 miles north of Birmingham and about 55 miles south of Huntsville.
Joey Robertson from Wagon Trail Hemp Farm near Dodge City plans to move forward with applying to be one of five of the state’s integrated medical cannabis licensed facilities. Of those five facilities within the state, one must be awarded to a minority. On Sept. 1, 2022, the Alabama Medical Cannabis Commission will begin accepting applications for licensing to be “an integrated facility or for a license as a cultivator processor, secure transporter, state testing laboratory or dispensary.”
Expecting to provide “no less than 30 good-paying jobs,” Robertson said he will also be utilizing off-duty law enforcement on the farm.
