In fact, some independent reviewers hired to examine medical cannabis applications had ties to businesses bidding for MMJ licenses, The Washington Post reported.
It’s the latest setback for a medical cannabis program that has been slowed by lawsuits alleging cultivation application reviewers didn’t follow selection rules as well as criticism that regulators failed to include a sufficient number of minority owned businesses.
