ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP) — A company that was on track to receive a license to grow medical marijuana in Maryland is challenging a state commission’s decision to drop the company down on the list.
GTI Maryland has scheduled a news conference for Tuesday in Baltimore.
The company has filed a lawsuit challenging the Maryland Medical Cannabis Commission for its decision.
The commission announced at an August meeting it was bumping two previously selected finalists because the initial selections didn’t include geographic representation noted in the state law. The panel has chosen 15 finalists to grow marijuana and 15 finalists to process it.
Two grower applicants that initially were in the 14th and 15th spots were bumped to 16th and 17th. GTI was one of the applicants moved out of the top 15.
