Hearing Set On Marijuana Ballot Question In Maryland

ANNAPOLIS, MD (AP) – A hearing is scheduled on a measure to put the legalization of marijuana in the state of Maryland on the ballot for voters to decide in November. The hearing in the House Judiciary Committee is scheduled for today. Both houses of the General Assembly would need to pass the bill by a three-fifths majority to put a constitutional amendment on the ballot. It would make possession and home cultivation of limited amounts of marijuana legal for adults 21 and over. It also would require the state to establish regulations and taxation for a legal cannabis market. It would remain illegal to consume marijuana in public or drive under the influence.

Disabled persons requiring assistance with the Public File should contact: Lisa Davis at 717-284-4123.
