Maryland Company Seeks Medical Cannabis Grow License Ahead of MMJ Program Schedule

Although Maryland has yet to put the final touches on its medical marijuana program, one local business has already bought some arable land to grow for the future program.

In the hopes of getting one of 15 licenses that will be awarded under the program, Vast Organic Farms bought 26 acres in Oldtown, on which it intends to combine indoor and outdoor growing operations, depending on the program’s final rules. A company spokesperson stated that VOF chose the site for its “size, security and privacy.”

Although applications for the licences won’t even be accepted until September, VOF isn’t the only company eager to get onboard with the state’s medical program. Several other companies have already contacted the Allegany County Commission with questions about the program.
