Maryland is about to take a giant leap forward in the world of cannabis. The state’s legalization of marijuana is set to take effect this weekend, with sales expected to launch soon after. This move comes as the governor recommits to his equity goals, ensuring that the benefits of this new industry are shared by all. The new law will allow adults over the age of 21 to possess up to one ounce of cannabis and cultivate up to six plants at home.

This is a significant shift in policy for Maryland, which previously only allowed medical marijuana use. The governor’s commitment to equity is a crucial aspect of this change. He has pledged to prioritize the inclusion of minority-owned businesses in the new industry, ensuring that the benefits of legalization are not limited to a select few.

This move is part of a larger trend in the United States, as more and more states move towards legalizing marijuana. Maryland is joining the ranks of other states such as Colorado, California, and Oregon, who have already embraced this new industry. As the cannabis industry continues to grow, it will be interesting to see how it impacts society as a whole.
