The head of the legislative Black Caucus wants one more shot at passing a law to expand the medical marijuana industry.
The Baltimore Sun reports that Delegate Cheryl Glenn, the caucus' head, wants Gov. Larry Hogan to issue a one-day special session for the General Assembly to pass a law that would grant more medical cannabis growing licenses.
The legislation was introduced in this year's session due to a lack of diversity within the industry -- despite a state diversity law, none of the 15 companies granted preliminary licenses were minority owned, according the the group.
Glenn said the legislative failure left black lawmakers "feeling rejected, dejected and taken for granted" by Democrats in the General Assembly.
