Councilmembers feel 'under duress' to create marijuana regulations

Baltimore County is finalizing its local regulations for recreational cannabis. But some board members felt "under duress" as they complied with state law. "I have to question the wisdom of just removing medical from the legislation and dumping cannabis, both adult use and medical, together," said Councilman Todd Crandell. One major amendment was added Monday — a decision on how close dispensaries can be to one another. "We do have one amendment to be consistent with the state — changing the distance between dispensaries from 2,500 feet to 1,000 feet," said Director of Permits Pete Guwald.
