MARYLAND: Prospective marijuana business owners plan to attend a seminar to learn about Maryland’s new medical law and the future of an industry that’s expected to be worth more than $10 billion within five years.
Maryland’s new medical marijuana law went into effect June 1. The law allows those with certain conditions to use medical marijuana if recommended by a doctor. The state-sanctioned Natalie M. LaPrade Medical Marijuana Commission was formed to develop possession limits and regulations for cultivation and dispensary facilities.
The Maryland Canna-Business Seminar is being co-sponsored by the Marijuana Policy Project and the Maryland branch of the National Cannabis Industry Association. Maryland Medical Marijuana Commission Executive Director Sharon Bloom and State Senator Jamie Raskin are scheduled to present, along with marijuana industry and policy experts.
