The Maryland legislature will adjourn as the clock hits midnight Monday, wrapping up a 90-day session defined by efforts to make the state a “safe haven for abortions,” to stand up a legal market for selling recreational cannabis and by attempting to strengthen gun control laws in the wake of consequential U.S. Supreme Court ruling last year. Lawmakers introduced 2,284 bills, covering a wide scope that ranged from a measure to designate Maryland Rye as the official state spirit to legislation that grants the state attorney general’s office the authority to prosecute in police-involved death investigations.
