BALTIMORE (WJZ) — Maryland now has its first legal crop of medical marijuana.

According to the Washington Post, at least two licensed companies: ForwardGro in Anne Arundel County and Curio Wellness in Baltimore County have marijuana plants growing.

Nearly 20 companies have been cleared to grow, process and sell the plant.

The cannabis crops will reportedly be harvested and taken to an independent laboratory for quality testing.

Industry officials say products should be available in medical marijuana dispensaries by next year.

  1. I am 61 and have been consuming cannabis off and on since my late teens (over 43 years). I’m a husband, father, electronics engineer, community volunteer, musician, marathon runner and successful business owner. I never drink alcoholic beverages or use tobacco products. I vaporize cannabis (no smoke, no smell, no problems) in the evening after work or on weekends. I am in excellent health, my memory is completely intact, I run 30-60 miles per week and finished my 3nd Marathon at Big Sur California April 30, 2017 first in my division TYVM. I am just one of millions of health conscious Americans seeking the least harmful buzz. How long do we have to suffer the lies and ridiculous nonsense from a government whose own data shows cannabis nearly harmless by comparison to prescription drugs, tobacco and booze??
