Marijuana prohibition has been just as ineffective, inefficient, and problematic as alcohol prohibition was in the 1920s and 1930s. It has burdened otherwise law-abiding Marylanders with criminal records for using a substance that is safer than alcohol, unfairly targeted people of color, diverted law enforcement resources from tackling real crimes, and handed over tax revenue to an underground — and sometimes dangerous — criminal market. Most Marylanders and Americans agree: It’s time for a smarter, more humane approach. Regulating and taxing marijuana will generate tens of millions of dollars for the state and create legitimate, tax-paying jobs.

These resources will help you make the case that it’s past time for a new approach.
