CannaMed Pharmaceuticals, which is seeking a license to manufacture, distribute and process pharmaceutical-grade medical cannabis products, has announced the addition of Harold “Hal’ Saylor to the CannaMED team.
Saylor, who retired last year after a 34-year career with the Delmar Police Department, will serve as the Public Information Officer, and will be the liaison to local government, individuals, businesses and institutions.
Saylor previously publicly supported Maryland’s moves to approve medical cannabis, and the need to carefully regulate and police implementation of the program’s objectives.
The longtime law enforcer will be primarily responsible for CannaMED’s community outreach programs, including the roll-out of the company’s “No Abuse” public education and awareness program, and CannaMED’s medication distribution program which will provide discounted medication to people in need, by working together with independent dispensaries across the state.
With 31 years spent as chief, Sayler retired as the longest-serving Chief of Police in Maryland and Delaware history.
Sayler lives in Mardela Springs. The marijuana-growing operation would be based in the former Ma-Tech facility there along Route 50.
