US (MD): Governor signs cannabis regulation bill into law

Maryland’s governor has signed a bill to regulate cannabis sales, setting the stage for statewide legalization.

House and Senate lawmakers reached an agreement on the cannabis legislation last month, sending it to the desk of Gov. Wes Moore (D), who signed it into law on Wednesday. 

The governor said at a signing ceremony that the law will “ensure that the rollout of recreational cannabis in our state drives opportunity in an equitable way.”

“The criminalization of cannabis harmed low income communities and communities of color in a profound way,” he said. “We want to make sure that the legalization of cannabis lifts those communities now in a profound way.”
