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)
The complete set of promulgated regulations, which became effective on September 14, 2015, can be read on the Division of State Documents website.
Maryland’s first medical cannabis dispensaries opened in December 2017. The state now has almost 50 licensed dispensaries, The Sun reported. More than 40 are open, according to the newspaper. Eventually, 102 medical cannabis dispensaries are expected to be in operation. About 28,000 patients are registered to buy medical cannabis products and is increasing with over 200 new patients signing up each day.
Flower prices have decreased since the state’s first dispensaries opened, but concentrates and topicals are still in short supply and can be prohibitively expensive. A gram of concentrate generally costs about $100 and a cartridge of oil generally goes for $70 to $90, depending on geography. MMCC regulations don’t allow retailers to sell edibles.
