The bill now grants five new licenses by October, plus four more for every 75,000 patients registered to use medical marijuana in the state.

A former member of the state House of Delegates is calling on the House to vote down the medical marijuana bill, so supporters can come back next year with a better version of the bill.

Del. Cheryl Glenn is the chair of the Legislative Black Caucus of Maryland and House bill's sponsor.

Under the version of the bill passed by the Senate last month, a physician that authorized a patient to smoke marijuana must attest that no other form would be effective.

The WV Medical Cannabis Act (SB 386) was up for passage Monday in the House.

It would establish a Bureau of Public Health program with identification cards for patients and authorize the drug's use for patients who are terminally ill or have severe or chronic intractable pain, cancer, seizures, post-traumatic stress disorder, AIDS and some other diseases.

House Bill 1350 was amended to postpone until July 2021 any reduction in the $48 million of supplemental admission tax annually distributed to casino communities, and the $33 million provided to non-casino communities across the state.

Shott said he also intentionally crafted significant fees for opening a dispensary or begin a medical marijuana growing operation.

In addition to those proposed in Shott's amendment, Pushkin's amendment included more ways marijuana could be consumed, albeit with some limitations, including smoking, oils and edibles.
