Medical Cannabis Commission Executive Director Announces Resignation

A December 2, 2015, Baltimore Business Journal article announced that Hannah Byron, the executive director of the Natalie M. LaPrade Medical Cannabis Commission, will step down from her role on January 27, 2016. As previously reported on Conduit Street, the Commission has received over 1,000 applications for medical cannabis growing facilities, processing facilities, and dispensaries located across the State. From the Business Journal article:

“As I anticipate my 30th year working in the public sector and the medical cannabis program’s transition to an important new phase, this is the logical time for me to hand the reins to a new executive director,” Byron said in a statement. …

She previously worked for eight years as assistant secretary for the division of tourism, film and the arts at the state’s Department of Commerce, formerly the Department of Business and Economic Development.
