Dothan herb and spice shop owner urges Gov. Ivey to sign Medical Marijuana Bill into law

News

ENTERPRISE, Ala. (WDHN)— Last Thursday, Alabama lawmakers passed the Medical Marijuana Bill after a lengthy debate.

John Barbaccia, also known as Johnny B of Herb & Spice Shop says the bill should get Gov. Kay Ivey’s signature.

“Marijuana has been medicine since the earliest of days it’s been used all over the world to stop asthma, bulimia, all types of nerve problems,” Barbaccia said.

Along with anxiety, Barbaccia says marijuana can treat other medical ailments.

Barbaccia also believes major pharmaceutical companies and corporations are to blame for the negative connotation the drug has.

“I believe that when man’s law conflict’s with god’s law there’s where the problem begins,” Barbaccia said.

He believes while some people do abuse the drug, making the cannabis itself illegal is wrong. Furthermore, Barbaccia says lawmakers should not stifle what he says is from God.

Even though the bill is passed it now waits for Gov. Ivey’s signature.
