MONTGOMERY | A bill has been pre-filed in the Alabama House that would legalize the use of marijuana for medical purposes.
I don't know man. I hope it happens (I dont smoke), but its Alabama. I mean we just started being allowed to have beer over 6% abv a few years ago....
Honestly, I'm shocked it's even been brought up at all. Maybe there's hope for us yet.
No way. Just no effing way.
RIP Lil Julio
If I lived in Alabama, I wouldn't get my hopes up. I know times have changed but it wasn't that long ago that they shot down the lottery.
F*ck this! if they do that I want Moonshine to be legal. I want to make moonshine
You can make a personal amount of moonshine. You can't make it to sell.
Not happening. We can't even have electronic bingo without people going nutzo.
The next 8 years will see probably 40 states pass this. It's finally happening. The people who still believe those 1940s videos are all dead, then there's a generation dying off that think its bad and god hates it, and now the oldest folks in America think it should just not be smoked by kids.
Sadly I feel like my state will be one of the last to allow it, PA... I'll be moving if everyone else around me gets the green light.
I live in Tennessee. We'll have politicians saying God says no up until the last moment. lol
The only people that care about the bingo are pastors and the State. Seems most people in this state don't really give a damn.
I don't smoke weed, and really don't much care for it, but would be okay with it being legalized, plus it would be hilarious to see the reaction of the rest of the country if Alabama legalized pot. They wouldn't know how to react, lol. But it isn't going to happen.

you can't in alabama (yet). you can't brew beer or wine even.
hb9 is a billed set to make brewing legal, was prefiled in oct i think, and it's sponsor is the rules committee chair (who decides what gets discussed, good news for homebrewers) and session starts on feb 5. hopefully it gets passed and soon.
edit to say i have no idea if that bill will cover 'shine (or any hard liquor)
edit again to say after thinking about it, i thought it was illegal in the us to distill liquor for home use. it's not technically illegal to distill at home in us, but you still have to file taxes and tons of paper work that makes it very impractical to do so without selling some.
"You cannot produce spirits for beverage purposes without paying taxes and without prior approval of paperwork to operate a distilled spirits plant. [See 26 U.S.C. 5601 & 5602 for some of the criminal penalties.] There are numerous requirements that must be met that make it impractical to produce spirits for personal or beverage use. Some of these requirements are paying excise tax, filing an extensive application, filing a bond, providing adequate equipment to measure spirits, providing suitable tanks and pipelines, providing a separate building (other than a dwelling) and maintaining detailed records, and filing reports. All of these requirements are listed in 27 CFR Part 19.
Spirits may be produced for non-beverage purposes for fuel use only without payment of tax, but you also must file an application, receive TTB's approval, and follow requirements, such as construction, use, records and reports."
This TTB web page provides FAQ's about consumer-oriented alcohol issues and personal/family-use production issues.

Obama needs an excuse to bring in a few more million "growers".
Will you be able to buy it on Sunday?
I agree. I do not partake in the herb any longer but I have been around it for a good portion of my life and I know this for a fact.
1) I have seen a lot of drunk people get into fights.
2) I have never seen a high person get into a fight.
I hope they pass this thing. Lots of tax revenue in this I promise.
Thanks for the info. Probably need to hide the still a little better then.
I'll believe it when I see it. More likely to be the last state to legalize it.
I hope it fails. Thankfully I am sure it will.

Can you say why? It will bring huge amount of revenue with hemp production and its much safer than Alcohol. You can't die from weed
Morally against it.
do you drink?

Edit: Do not get drunk, if that's what you mean
