A Washington County Circuit Court judge has granted a preliminary injunction that will give the greenlight for some Maryland hemp businesses to reopen.
Following the recreational legalization of cannabis beginning on July 1, many hemp businesses were forced to close. Per laws passed during the 2023 Legislative Session, businesses without a state license were unable to operate and sell products that were over the cap of THC content.
The underlying lawsuit remains unresolved. Additional regulations are expected to be addressed during the 2024 Legislative Session.
