ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP) - The Maryland Medical Marijuana Commission has announced the appointment of its first executive director.

The panel said Friday that Hannah Byron has been named to the position. Bryon has been assistant secretary for the Division of Tourism, Film and the Arts of the Department of Business and Economic Development.

The appointment is effective Jan. 14.

Dr. Paul Davies, who chairs the commission, says the panel is excited that Byron will bring deep experience with the business community to the commission.

Byron says she looks forward to working with the medical profession and patients, law enforcement as well as business and agricultural leaders to get the state’s medical marijuana program operational as quickly as possible.

The program is not expected to be operational until early to mid-2016.
