Medical marijuana dispensaries could be coming to Md. by summer
WASHINGTON — Medical marijuana has been legal in Maryland since June 2014, but there is still no place in the state where patients can legally buy it. However, that may soon change.
Once the licenses are finalized and issued, these dispensaries will be tightly regulated, said MMCC executive director Patrick Jameson in the news release.
Jameson expects these businesses to be run “in an extremely professional manner” to give the public “reassurance” they will positively impact local communities, he said in the release.
In the next stage of the licensing process, the new business owners will have to go through financial and criminal background checks, the release said.
