The Baltimore Sun write

The preliminary winners of lucrative licenses to grow and process medical marijuana in Maryland will be announced Aug. 15, more than a week after a state commission selects the highest-ranked applications.

Maryland’s medical cannabis commission is scheduled to publicly review and recommend the highest-ranked applications Aug.5. But since all identifying information about the applicants has been redacted, applicants and the public will not know the identity of the preliminary winners until 10 days later.

Those selected will undergo another round of reviews and inspections before the licenses are granted. Then it will be another six months before the drug is available to patients.
