On April 22, 2015, the Maryland Medical Cannabis Commission met to further consider regulations to implement the medical Cannabis law. The Commission withdrew from further consideration the draft regulations that were published in the Maryland Register on January 23, 2015 (Volume 42 – Issue 2 – Pages 214-244). That draft, completed by the Commission before the General Assembly considered H.B. 490, was also the basis for the submission of comments received from 57 members of the public.
The Commission carefully considered the public comments, the further comments on a proposed revised draft posted on the Commission website on March 20, 2015, and the text and objectives of the General Assembly in enacting H.B. 490. The Commission then adopted a new draft regulation to forward to the Secretary of Health and Mental Hygiene, posted on the Commission website, dated April 22, 2015. These regulations will be subject to the standard regulatory review process of consideration by the Secretary, the Attorney General and the Joint Committee on Legislative, Executive and Administrative Review (AELR).
