Chair Of Maryland’s Marijuana Regulatory Body Takes Job At Law Firm With Cannabis Practice

Regulators in Maryland are questioning the recent appointment of the chair of the state’s medical cannabis regulatory board, Tiffany Randolph as an attorney at a law firm with a cannabis practice, reported The Baltimore Sun.

Randolph works as a personal injury and medical malpractice attorney at Shulman Rogers, a law firm that also advises Maryland cannabis companies on issues such as mergers, tax compliance and raising capital, to name a few, as per the firm’s website.

The attorney has been serving on the board of the regulatory body since 2017. Being unpaid positions, the board’s members have full-time jobs outside the cannabis space.

Chase Cook, a spokesperson for the Maryland Department of Health - the agency above the Maryland Medical Cannabis Commission - commented following Randolph’s appointment, “an ethical wall has been created separating her from the cannabis practice, its attorneys, and clients and potential clients.

“The Maryland Medical Cannabis Commission and Tiffany are also seeking advice from the State Ethics Commission as to any additional steps that may be necessary or recommended,” Cook added.
