Maryland Patient Registry Now Open!

You may have been wondering...how can I become a patient for medical marijuana in Maryland? After months of delays and anticipation, patient and caregiver open enrollment officially began on Monday, April 24th for The Natalie M. LaPrade Maryland Medical Cannabis Commission! The registration processes and requirements differ for adult and minor patients, but both are to be completed online. Requirements and more information on how to register can be found here.

As a reminder, medical cannabis is not yet available in the state of Maryland. However, pre-approved growers, processors, and dispensaries are currently in the process of becoming operational. According to the MMCC, medical cannabis is expected to be available by the end of this summer. We are excited for Maryland patients and look forward to helping these new cannabusinesses build their brands!

Summer Intern: Richy Arthurs

The Brand Joint office has gone international! Originally from Dublin, Ireland, Richy Arthurs joined the Brand Joint and Peppermill Projects team for an internship to learn what goes on behind the scenes of a cannabis branding and design studio. Richy studied Web Development at Maynooth University and was formerly employed at IBM in Dublin.

Richy "cycles" to our office weekly, where he assists our creative team with brainstorming sessions and promotional projects. Since joining the team, Richy has quickly (and impressively) picked up some interactive and animation skills. He's currently working on some fun, informational videos for Brand Joint and our clients.

In his spare time, he enjoys photography, reading, ultimate frisbee, drinking beer and scoping out his new home here in Maryland. Welcome to the team, Richy!
