Maryland House Gives Initial OK to Measure Legalizing Medical Cannabis

Maryland’s House of Representatives has given initial approval to House Bill 1321, amaryland measure to legalize cannabis for medical purposes. The proposal – which has over 60 sponsors – is expected to receive a final vote in the House this Monday.

If approved into law, House Bill 1321 would legalize medical cannabis for those with a qualifying condition (such as cancer, PTSD or chronic pain). State-licensed cannabis cultivation and distribution centers would be authorized to provide patients with safe access to their medicine.

Delegate Cheryl D. Glenn, the primary sponsor of the bill, is confident that the measure will pass through the legislature; “We’re going to get a bill passed this year,” she said.

Yesterday Maryland’s Senate approved a separate cannabis-related measure which would remove criminal penalties for the possession of up to 10 grams.
