Md. Black Caucus Upset With Approval of First Medical Marijuana License

BALTIMORE (WBFF) — The chair of the Maryland Legislative Black Caucus is expressing “shock” at news that the state’s cannabis commission has given final approval to the first license to grow medical marijuana.

Forward Grow, a company which has invested more than $8 million to build a warehouse in Anne Arundel County to grow medical cannabis, has been given approval to proceed with their project.

But Baltimore City Delegate Cheryl Glenn, chair of the Legislative Black Caucus, says she was told that final licenses would not be issued until August.
