ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP) — A Maryland panel on medical marijuana is looking at adjusting fees for growers, dispensers and patients, which critics say are too high.

The commission, which did not vote on any regulations during a meeting Tuesday in Annapolis, also has added marijuana extracts to the regulations, so patients could ingest the drug without smoking.

Dr. Paul Davies, who chairs the commission, says he is hopeful the board will be able to vote on the regulations at its next meeting on Nov. 13.

The panel had a Sept. 15 deadline. Advocates have criticized the delay.

Rachelle Young, an attorney with the Marijuana Policy Project, says each day of delay is another day that patients must suffer.
