Maryland: Marijuana Legalization Pending

UpdateCommittee members in the Senate will hear testimony on March 2nd at 1pm. Committee members in the House will hear testimony on March 7th at 1pm. 

Update: A new Goucher poll cites that 58% of Marylanders support marijuana legalization and only 36% oppose it. 

HB 1185 and SB 928 are pending in the Maryland House and Senate. These measures seek to legalize and regulate the possession and use of limited amounts of marijuana for adults over the age of 21.

Under these proposals, adults would be permitted to possess and grow limited quantities of cannabis. The measures would also regulate and license a commercial and retail marijuana market.

The ongoing enforcement of cannabis prohibition financially burdens taxpayers, encroaches upon civil liberties, engenders disrespect for the law. According to a recent 
poll by the Washington Post, 63% of Maryland registered voters support the legalization of marijuana for personal use.
