Maryland Marijuana Laws Made Easy for You

Maryland: Almost there in Little America
The Maryland marijuana laws are not as good as they are in the nation’s capital, but it’s getting there. Legislation shows no signs of slowing down in the state, as they decriminalized possession in 2014, and then decriminalized paraphernalia and public use in 2016. There have been several attempts to legalize it recreationally since 2010. None have passed so far, but there is growing support among the voting bodies in the state. Medical marijuana in Maryland was actually legalized in 2013, but getting the first dispensary open took until 2017. Is marijuana legal in Maryland? Not yet, but the people are definitely fighting for it.
