NORWOOD, Mass., July 02, 2024 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — MariMed Inc. (CSE: MRMD) (OTCQX: MRMD), a leading multi-state cannabis operator focused on improving lives every day, today announced the closing of its acquisition of the operating assets of Our Community Wellness & Compassionate Care Center, Inc. in Prince George’s County, Maryland on April 5th.

MariMed also owns and operates a Thrive Wellness dispensary in Annapolis and a cultivation and processing facility in Hagerstown. MariMed plans to continue seeking additional dispensary acquisitions to achieve the maximum of four allowed in the state.

“We are thrilled to announce the closing of this acquisition,” said Jon Levine, MariMed’s Chief Executive Officer. “Maryland is a fantastic, high-growth, adult-use market. Maximizing our footprint there has long been one of our top strategic priorities, and this agreement gets us closer to that goal.”
