A lawyer who successfully halted the distribution of cannabis licenses in New York is now targeting Maryland. California lawyer Jeffrey Jensen filed a lawsuit in federal court on Jan. 26 on behalf of his wife Justyna seeking an injunction to stop the Maryland Cannabis Administration (MCA) from distributing any licenses from the 2023 application program. The suit argues that one of Maryland’s three criteria to be eligible for a recreational cannabis license under its social equity program unconstitutionally discriminates against out-of-state applicants.
