In last year’s legislative session, lawmakers voted to expand the state’s medical marijuana program; since then, the state has been trying to figure out just how to put a program into practice. This week, the Maryland Medical Cannabis Commission announced some answers: Initially, there will be 15 two-year licenses to grow marijuana, two dispensary licenses per senatorial district, and an unlimited number of licenses for processors. Those licenses will come at a steep cost: $125,000 for growers and $40,000 for dispensaries. Doctors will have to register with the state to order referrals to a dispensary.
If you have any feelings about any of this, we’re in the middle of the MMCC’s 30-day comment period — so feel free to let your sentiments be known.
