MD dispensary license winners move forward amid turmoil
By Omar Sacirbey
Maryland dispensary license winners celebrated briefly after learning about their victories last week, then turned their attention to getting their businesses up and running in what could become one of the most lucrative medical marijuana markets on the East Coast.
For most of the 102 license winners announced Friday, that means fundraising, buying or renovating real estate, establishing relationships with growers, processors and laboratories and hiring staff.
Others, however, also are focused on concerns that the oft-delayed program could be held up some more by other factors, most significantly a pending court case and state lawmakers.
