ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP) — The Maryland House of Delegates voted Friday to reprimand a lawmaker for using his position to advocate for changes in awarding licenses to medical marijuana producers that could have resulted in a benefit to a company that employed him.
The House voted 138-0 to reprimand Del. Dan Morhaim, a Baltimore County Democrat who was a paid consultant for Doctors Orders, a company that is now a finalist to grow and process marijuana in Maryland.
The case prompted Gov. Larry Hogan to call for ethics reforms he is backing to "try to stop this growing culture of corruption" in Annapolis.
On three occasions last year, Morhaim advocated to the state's medical marijuana commission that it change its method of awarding licenses to process marijuana, said Del. Adrienne Jones. His plan, she said, would have permitted any entity awarded a grower's license that also applied for a processor license to be automatically granted a processor license, unless the application was grossly deficient."
Amazing that he wouldn't know that that is a problem.
