Medical Marijuana Chair Meets With Attorney General

ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP) — The chairman of Maryland’s medical marijuana commission says the panel will work with the attorney general’s office to address diversity concerns in the state’s medical marijuana licensing process.

Dr. Paul Davies met for about an hour with Attorney General Brian Frosh on Tuesday.

Davies says a group that will include commission staff members and members of the attorney general’s office will be evaluating options. He says conducting a disparity study is on the table as a means of working to address the issue.

Critics have noted a lack of diversity in applicants selected as finalists to grow and process marijuana. Davies says the commission is committed to considering diversity and ethnicity.
