In an 126 to 10 vote, Maryland’s full House of Representatives has approved House Bill 1321, a measure to explicitly legalize medical cannabis.The proposal – which has over 60 sponsors – now heads to the Senate, where its passage is expected.

If approved into law, House Bill 1321 would legalize medical cannabis for those with a qualifying condition, such as cancer, post traumatic stress disorder, and chronic pain.

The bill would authorize state-licensed cannabis cultivation and distribution centers which would provide safe access to medical cannabis for patients.

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

  1. MD actually fully passed a medical bill last year, but they limited it to a few academic medical facilities like Johns Hopkins and they all refused to participate for fear of federal action.

    Maryland is incorporating the dispensaries for safe access in the bill to start with, yet we still set here in Michigan waiting for a bill held up in an anit-pot committee to allow safe access to Meds. Wish Michigan senetors would get off their butts(and their high horses).
