Snow Hill going green? Dispensary coming next year

Medical marijuana in Maryland is only a year away and it appears that at least one dispensary will be operating in Worcester County.

The state devised a three-tiered system, dividing the new industry into growers, processors and dispensaries. Growers and processors were awarded preliminary approvals in August, and the Maryland Medical Cannabis Commission just announced the preliminary approvals for dispensaries this past Friday.

Currently, the state is limiting the number of dispensaries to two per state senate district, with exceptions made for certain growers that also applied for a dispensary license, though no providers availed themselves of this option locally.

State Senate district 38, which is represented by Jim Mathias and contains all of Worcester and Somerset counties, as well as portions of Wicomico will be represented by Positive Energy LLC and OC Botanicals LLC.

8:41- please educate yourself! As someone with chronic pain I'm hoping to give medical marijuana a try. I have never used marijuana or any other drug to get high. The studies showing medical marijuana's aid in dealing with chronic pain have me very hopeful!
