The Maryland Medical Cannabis Commission granted the first preliminary licenses to grow and process medical marijuana today, reports the Carroll County Times. The panel approved 15 grower licenses and 15 processor licenses from a pool of several hundred applicants.
The Maryland General Assembly first legalized medical cannabis in 2014. The Maryland Medical Cannabis Commission is reviewing the 811 dispensary applications, 146 grower applications, and 124 processor applications received late last year.
The identity of the first licensees will remain a secret until Monday, August 15.
Later that same week, on Saturday, August 20 from 8:15 am to 9:15 am, Commission Executive Director Patrick Jameson will hold a session at the MACo Summer Conference to answer questions about the current regulation and licensing process.
