Minority-owned company files suit against state's cannabis commission

BALTIMORE (WBFF) -- A minority-owned company based in Annapolis, Maryland has filed suit against the state's cannabis commission claiming it was unfairly denied a preliminary license to grow medical marijuana.

Alternative Medicine Maryland, LLC filed suit in Baltimore City Circuit Court claiming the commission "was derelict in its legislatively mandated duty to actively seek to achieve racial, ethnic and geographical diversity when licensing medical cannabis growers."

The suit states that the commission "ignored race and ethnicity throughout the licensing process in clear contravention of its authorizing statute."

Oh, God, the itty bitty minority who became one by just naming the businessman's wife as "Owner" has its panties in a bunch because they don't automatically get what they want no matter the qualifications for the position.

Either you have the required facilities for a proper operation....OOOOHHHHH!, cough, cough, I guess that doesn't matter since you're a "minority"' now, does it?

Yes, it does.
