US (MD): Delegate seeks to legalize cannabis for adult use

A Maryland delegate is seeking to introduce legislation that would legalize cannabis in the state for non-medical adult use. Baltimore Democrat delegate Luke Clippinger wants to put a question on the ballot, effectively a constitutional amendment that if passed would allow voters to decide at the polls whether to legalize marijuana.

The bill was introduced in the House on 12 January and would establish a date for an individual over the age of 21 in the state to use and possess cannabis. According to the bill, the General Assembly would set laws for the use, distribution, possession, regulation, and taxation of cannabis.

Currently, the state has a legal medical cannabis programme, along with neighbouring states Pennsylvania, West Virginia, and Delaware. Washington D, and Virginia have legalized adult-use recreational cannabis. The bill would propose the ballot question: “Do you favor the legalization of adult-use cannabis in the State of Maryland?”

Local educational institution Goucher College has been conducting polls to gauge the temperature of cannabis legalization dating back to 2013. One recent poll asked Maryland residents to present their views on the legalization of cannabis, with two-thirds of respondents supporting cannabis legalization.
