Even as Maryland’s medical marijuana industry continues to move through bureaucracy, a firm looking to provide testing and analytics is getting set up.
Steep Hill Maryland said it received pre-approval from the Maryland Medical Cannabis Commission to test medical cannabis. It’s the first testing company to get the go-ahead. The company, which has a license to operate from Berkeley, Calif.-based Steep Hill, is looking to set up a lab in Columbia.
As we reported when Steep Hill first announced a Maryland presence, the company tests medical cannabis for potency and safety. It’s led by Andrew Rosenstein, who is gastroenterology director at the University of Maryland Saint Joseph Medical Center and a professor at the University of Maryland School of Medicine in Baltimore.
There’s also a bill in the General Assembly this session to legalize recreational marijuana, which Steep Hill’s California operation also tests.-30-
