Getting to Know Metrc in Alabama

Medical cannabis was legalized in Alabama in 2021 via Bill SB46. Since then, over 60 cities and counties across the state have approved ordinances allowing its sale. From there, the Alabama Medical Cannabis Commission (AMCC) was created to implement and administer the medical cannabis program's laws.

Earlier this year, the AMCC began reviewing applications for cultivators, processors and dispensaries, along with other cannabis industry stakeholders. The University of South Alabama has been collaborating with the commission to evaluate these applications.

On June 19, 2023, the AMCC began issuing licenses for the state’s new medical cannabis industry. Like many other states, the AMCC has signed a contract with Metrc to be its track and trace compliance partner for this new program.

For approved Alabama cannabis licensees, this means implementing and staying compliant with Metrc is mandatory. And that’s where Distru comes in. Our cannabis ERP is a huge help, saving you hours every week in all the compliance and day-to-day operations paperwork.
