Separating Myth From Fact on Medical Cannabis

Get your ongoing questions answered about medical cannabis at the 2015 MACo December Winter Conference.  Learn about the medical efficacy of medical cannabis and the security and financial oversight issues that growers, processors, and dispensaries must manage.  As previously reported on Conduit Street, Maryland has received 355 applications for growing facilities, processing facilities, and dispensaries spread across the state.


As Maryland moves forward with legalized medical cannabis, there remain questions, concerns, and potential misconceptions about how certain aspects of the policy will be implemented. Some question whether cannabis has valid medical uses that outweigh its potential drawbacks. Others raise concerns over issues like security (both on-site and during product transport) and financial oversight (federal banking law still views proceeds from medical cannabis as illegal). Panelists will summarize where Maryland is in its implementation process and address the commonly raised issues of medical efficacy, security, and accounting and financial management.
