Marijuana Company Won’t Drop Lawsuit Unless It Gets License to Grow

A medical marijuana company suing the state said Tuesday it would not drop its lawsuit unless it gets a license to grow the drug. But its CEO said the firm will no longer insist that a license for it be written into state law.

That insistence was at the heart of a standoff between General Assembly leaders, and the key reason Senate President Thomas V. Mike Miller and House Speaker Michael E. Busch would not call lawmakers back to Annapolis for a special session to expand the medical marijuana industry.
