Heard the one about the rabbi and the pastor who want to sell medical pot?
The vast list of applicants for one of up to 15 licenses to grow marijuana for medical purposes in Maryland includes at least two religious leaders, Rabbi Jeffrey Kahn and Pastor Gareth E. Murray.
Kahn is a longtime fixture in the District’s medical cannabis community, serving about 1,000 patients at the Takoma Wellness Center dispensary in the city’s northern tip.
Just about every day, he said, he has to turn away residents from nearby Maryland who are barred from the D.C. program. He has invested in a prospective Maryland growery called Rosebud Organics and has applied to open a second shop just across the border in Takoma Park.
