Maryland’s Highest Court Stops Hearing To Upend Medical Marijuana Industry

June 3rd, 2017 by WCBC Radio

Maryland's highest court on Friday intervened to halt a case that could upend the state's fledgling medical marijuana industry.The Baltimore Sun reports the Court of Appeals issued a stay minutes before a Baltimore Circuit Court hearing on whether to put the entire cannabis program on hold while sorting out allegations the state improperly picked which companies should grow the drug. The court's written ruling stopped the case "until further notice." Lawyers representing 13 of 15 companies selected to cultivate marijuana had asked to stop the hearing so they can have a voice in the process. While lawyers said the next step is not clear, the intervention effectively allows Maryland's marijuana industry to continue for now.
