Po­ten­tial con­flicts found for med­i­cal mar­i­juana ex­perts

The Washington Times Daily - - METRO -

A news­pa­per has found that sev­eral ex­perts who re­viewed Mary­land med­i­cal mar­i­juana busi­ness ap­pli­cants had ties to com­pa­nies they re­viewed.

The Wash­ing­ton Post ob­tained records that show po­ten­tial con­flicts of in­ter­est and re­ports that the Mary­land Med­i­cal Cannabis Com­mis­sion is in­ves­ti­gat­ing. Fi­nal li­censes are set to be awarded in Au­gust.

The news­pa­per re­ported that po­ten­tial con­flicts in­clude a woman who said she had “no known re­la­tion­ships” with ap­pli­cants, but later re­viewed an ap­pli­ca­tion for a com­pany where her hus­band was a man­ager and was af­fil­i­ated with a Mas­sachusetts mar­i­juana re­tailer she co-founded.
