Who We Are

The Maryland Cannabis Policy Coalition is a group of like-minded organizations and individuals who are committed to ending the failed policy of cannabis prohibition in the Free State.

We approach the issue from many perspectives, but we all agree that regulating cannabis like alcohol would be far better than the status quo. We hope you’ll join us.

First, Do No Harm

Cannabis prohibition does far more harm than good, and that’s why a majority of Maryland residents support ending it.

Advance Social Justice

Cannabis prohibition has been disproportionately targeted at communities of color, and criminal records make it difficult to access many government services or even to get jobs, housing, or further one’s education.

Protect Our Youth

Drug dealers don’t card. Moving cannabis sales into state-licensed outlets would allow for strict regulations against selling to people under 21 years of age.

Promote Public Health

We need child-resistant packaging, testing products for mold or other contaminants, clear labeling with potency and serving sizes, and bans on certain products.

Boost the Economy

Regulating cannabis like alcohol will create thousands of good-paying jobs in agriculture, manufacturing, retail, and many other fields and bring in over $180 Million per year in taxes.
