Maryland House approves framework measure that enables adult-use cannabis to be sold in stores

The Maryland House voted for a measure that would create a legal framework and tax structure to enable recreational cannabis to be sold in stores as soon as July 1.

The House voted 103-32 for the bill, sending it to the Senate, which is moving forward with a separate measure.

Although Maryland voters approved a constitutional amendment in November to legalize recreational cannabis, lawmakers left details about implementation to be decided this session.

"You might not have agreed with cannabis or the vote that our citizens took, but they took it, so it's now our obligation to create an adult-use program," said Del. C.T. Wilson, the chair of the House Economic Matters Committee. "And it's our duty to ensure that Marylanders can receive the benefit of ownership in this industry, that citizens can have access to safe and effective cannabis without fear of adverse health effects or violence."
