Alabama Governor Robert Bentley has signed Senate Bill 174, a medical cannabis proposal which was passed unanimously by the state's House and Senate.

Under the new law, the University of Alabama's Department of Neurology will be authorized to prescribe, produce and distribute low-THC cannabis extracts (such as cannabis oil and tincture) to those with seizure disorders.

The bill is named Carly's Law, in honor of 3-year-old Carly Chandler who suffers from epilepsy. The measure will be funded with $1 million from the state's Education Trust Fund.
