Despite missing a key state deadline earlier this month, three more medical marijuana growers won final licenses on Monday to cultivate the drug.
The Maryland Medical Cannabis Commission voted to grant approval for three of the five companies that had missed the deadline to be operational by Aug. 15. The other two firms were granted formal extensions.
“We’re very excited that there were no more delays,” said Jake Van Wingerden, chair of the Maryland Wholesale Medical Cannabis Association, the growers trade group, and president of one of the three growers to get their licenses on Monday.
