Special Legislative Session January 31, to Discuss Medical Cannabis Dispensaries

The Queen Anne’s County Commissioners will hold a special legislative session at 6 p.m. Tuesday, Jan 31, to discuss, among other matters, medical cannabis dispensaries.

 County Administrator Gregg Todd said, “The main topic will be to discuss/possibly introduce legislation limiting where medical cannabis can be processed/dispensed. Planning and Zoning staff will be presenting their findings/research on zoning districts in which medical cannabis facilities may be located. We have also invited representatives from Hippocratic Growth, LLC; the company that has been awarded a preapproval for a medical cannabis dispensary from the MD Medical Cannabis Commission for this district, to give us a presentation on what their plans/operations will look like.”

 County Commission Stephen Wilson said, “Recent commercial applications to Planning and Zoning have made County Government confront the issue of medical marijuana. Queen Anne’s County is directed by State Law to accept medical cannabis within the County. The Commissioners are legally compelled to accept State Code, but are making every effort to safeguard public health and safety by as cautious regulation and policy as legally possible. They will endeavor to comply with the law without encouragement of the practice.”

 The Natalie M. LaPrade Maryland Medical Cannabis Commission develops policies, procedures and regulations to implement programs that ensure medical cannabis is available to qualifying patients in a safe and effective manner. The Commission oversees all licensing, registration, inspection and testing measures pertaining to Maryland’s medical cannabis program and provides relevant program information to patients, physicians, growers, dispensers, processors, testing laboratories and caregivers, according to their website.
