Delaware Officials Eye Medical Marijuana License

Posted: Updated:

DOVER, Del. (AP) - State officials are in contract negotiations with a lobbyist who once worked for U.S. Sen. Tom Carper to run Delaware's first medical marijuana dispensary.
    
Public health officials informed Mark Lally, president of First State Compassion Center, in a letter last month that his organization submitted the top bid for the medical marijuana operation.
    
Officials released the letter Thursday in response to a Freedom of Information Act request by The Associated Press.
    
Meanwhile, a judge has scheduled a hearing Monday in a lawsuit claiming that Lally breached a contract with former Lewes city Councilman A. Judson Bennett.
    
Bennett says he hired Lally to help him try to obtain a medical marijuana license, but that Lally, without Bennett's knowledge, later began working with a New England group to land the contract.
