MONTGOMERY, AL — A bill that sought to legalize and regulate the adult use of marijuana in Alabama has been killed by a committee in the House.
House Bill 550 was tabled by the House Committee on Public Safety and Homeland Security and will not be voted on, or even receive a hearing, this year.
House Bill 550, the Alabama Cannabis and Hemp Reform Act of 2013, was introduced in April by Birmingham Democrat Rep. Patricia Todd, who has unsuccessfully lobbied her colleagues at the Alabama state house to legalize medical marijuana, including two medical marijuana bills introduced this year.
The bill would have also authorized the medical use of marijuana in Alabama and the cultivation of industrial hemp.
Rep. Todd is expected to re-introduce the legislation next year.

Moroccos war on hashish: Tonnes of cannabis resin go up in smoke
Category: News | Posted on Fri, May, 10th 2013 by THCFinder
RABAT - Moroccan customs authorities on Thursday incinerated 9.5 tonnes of cannabis resin in a suburb of Casablanca, official media reported, days after record hashish hauls in neighbouring Spain.
The drugs, which were seized in two separate operations last year by customs authorities at Casablanca port, were burned in the presence of government officials, police and members of the royal gendarmerie, the MAP news agency reported.
The first bust was made in June during the inspection of a truck bound for Belgium and found more than 5.7 tonnes of cannabis resin, or "chira" as it is known locally, divided into 10 kilo packages and hidden in hundreds of boxes.
The second operation a month later intercepted 3.78 tons of chira hidden in a truck carrying tiles from Fez to the Belgian port city of Antwerp.
Late last month, Spanish police found 32 tonnes of the drug in a truck carrying melons from Morocco.
Then on Monday, the same police force announced that they had seized 52 tonnes of hashish in an industrial warehouse in the southern Spanish city of Cordoba, setting a European record.

Colombia Hopes Marijuana Will Help Addicts Kick Hard Drug Habit
Category: News | Posted on Thu, May, 9th 2013 by THCFinder
The Colombian government is testing a new tactic to wean addicts of synthetic drugs, a moe that has some people praising the effort while other claiming it’s a dopey idea.
In the upcoming weeks, officials in the country's capital, Bogotá, will begin a program giving marijuana to addicts of bazuco -- a cheap form of cocaine made out of drug residue mixed with kerosene and sulfuric acid that gives users a crack-like high and a heroin-like addiction.
Researchers working on the project hope to help addicts kick their habit by easing them off the harder substance by using marijuana, which they suspect will be less addictive.
“I had tried other drugs before that, but the addiction caused by bazuco is truly uncontrollable,” Javier Cortés García, a former addict, told the website InfosurHoy. “The five months I lived on the streets, I couldn’t even remember who I was – all I wanted was bazuco to somehow satisfy the craving – a craving that never ends until the next fix. It’s really like living a nightmare, but you’re wide awake.”
