Executive director of Maryland’s Medical Cannabis Commission resigns
The Sun reports…
Joy A. Strand, a health care executive who joined the Maryland Medical Cannabis Commission in December 2017, led the commission for nearly two years.
Will Tilburg, the agency’s director of policy and government affairs, will serve as acting executive director, according to the release.
Strand’s departure comes as the state’s medical marijuana program continues to expand. The commission is in the middle of selecting companies to award one of the state’s 14 new growing and processing licenses in a process designed to increase the participation of minority- and women-owned businesses.
