Maryland Commission Announces Medical Marijuana Dispensary License Pre-Approvals

Posted: Updated:

BALTIMORE, Md. - The Maryland commission on medical marijuana has released the list of the applicants who have been awarded pre-approvals for dispensary licenses.

On Friday, the Maryland Medical Cannabis Commission (MMCC) released the names of the 102 entities that got stage one approval to open dispensaries in Maryland, up to two per senatorial district.

Maryland's Eastern Shore consists of three senatorial districts, and each one had two entities granted dispensary license pre-approvals.

In District 36, which includes Cecil, Kent, Queen Anne's and part of Caroline County, the companies are Hippocratic Growth LLC and PharmKent LLC. In District 37, which includes the rest of Caroline County, Dorchester, Talbot and part of Wicomico County, the pre-approvals were given to Peninsula Alternative Health LLC and Tilstar LLC. And in District 38, which includes the rest of Wicomico County and Somerset and Worcester, the companies are OC Botanicals LLC and Positive Energy LLC.

It is unknown at this time where each of those entities plans to open dispensaries within those senatorial districts if they receive stage two approval.

All pre-awardees have one year to implement operations. Then they will continue on to stage two of the approval process, which will include undergoing criminal background investigations, financial due diligence, and compliance inspections by the MMCC, as well as completing regulatory requirements, raising capital, securing local zoning approvals, and construction of facilities. The commissioners will vote for licensure in a public meeting once compliance with the regulatory requirements is complete. 

More information about how pre-approval was awarded for dispensary applicants, as well as the full list of entities that received pre-approval, can be found here.
