The Allegany Medical Marijuana Dispensary was founded by three co-owners, each of whom contribute to a range of expertise in the fields of specialty pharmaceuticals, healthcare and business.
After Maryland lawmakers passed the law in 2013 allowing the use of medical marijuana, the state made plans to award up to two dispensaries per state senatorial district (there are 47 in Maryland). The Allegany Medical Marijuana Dispensary applied in October 2015 for one of two licenses available to represent Maryland Senatorial District One and was officially selected on December 9, 2016 based on the quality of their application.
Many consider medical cannabis to provide public health benefits by providing a safe alternative to prescription painkillers such as opioids, which due to their addictiveness, have had a strong hold in many communities in Maryland. Statewide, opioid-related deaths in Maryland have increased a staggering 76 percent since 2010, creating what some call an opioid epidemic. Research shows that access to medical cannabis dispensaries is associated with a significant reduction in substance abuse admissions and opiate overdose fatalities.
