On Aug. 15, 2016, the Natalie M. LaPrade Maryland Medical Cannabis Commission announced the names of the 15 growers and 15 processors who received Stage One license pre-approvals, with seven of the processors affiliated with growers who received Stage One license pre-approvals.

“I’m excited that we have a great number of outstanding companies willing to help sick people in Maryland,” said Dr. Paul W. Davies, Chairman of the Maryland Medical Cannabis Commission.

“Now that the Commissioners have made their selections, the real work begins for these companies. We will implement a rigorous Stage Two background and financial due diligence process for these entities prior to issuing a license,” said Patrick Jameson, the MMCC’s Executive Director. “I truly look forward to facilitating this nascent state wide industry and working with local, city, and county jurisdictions and with the principals of these organizations.”
