The Legislative Black Caucus calls for a special session on medical marijuana legislation

BALTIMORE, Maryland-Members of the Maryland General Assembly Legislative Black Caucus, upset by the failure of one of their top priorities in the closing minutes of the just-ended 90-day session are now calling for passage of that legislation and demanding the governor and legislative leaders call a special session to do that. The bill would expand the number of licensed growers in state’s medical marijuana program by adding five growers to add diversity which the caucus says is currently lacking.
