Maryland’s marijuana legalization plan is thoughtful and likely to succeed

March 1, 2022

A set of proposals to legalize recreational marijuana in Maryland in two phases — a statewide referendum on a constitutional amendment and then administrative implementation — passed the Maryland State House of Delegates Friday. The state Senate is expected to take up the legislation shortly. The bill — crafted by Del. Luke H. Clippinger (D-Baltimore City) — appears to have carefully addressed many issues that have plagued recreational legalization in other states. Though the disposition of the legislation remains to be seen, Democrats have a veto-proof majority and strong support in both chambers, so the prospects for success are very good.
