Delaware Judge Mulls Medical Marijuana Suit

DELAWARE:  A Delaware judge is mulling whether to dismiss a lawsuit against a lobbyist who once worked for U.S. Sen. Tom Carper in a dispute over who should be allowed to operate Delaware’s first medical marijuana dispensary.

The judge heard arguments Monday on Mark Lally’s motion to dismiss the lawsuit but did not indicate when he would rule.

State officials, meanwhile, are continuing to negotiate a contract with Lally, president of First State Compassion Center, after he submitted the top bid for the medical marijuana operation.
