Earlier this year, the Maryland General Assembly passed legislation to place a ballot question to legalize cannabis for adults before the voters this November. With Election Day approaching, the campaign to legalize cannabis for adults in Maryland recently launched statewide with a campaign video and website promoting the passage of Question 4.
Former Baltimore Raven Eugene Monroe, an outspoken advocate for marijuana policy and criminal justice reform, chairs the campaign. Marylanders will have the opportunity to legalize cannabis for adults over 21 years old if the question passes.
“Legalizing cannabis would stimulate Maryland’s economy and create tens of thousands of good-paying jobs, while allowing Maryland residents to benefit from vital investments in education, public health, and public safety funded by cannabis taxes,” said Chairman Monroe. “Passing Question 4 will put an end to the failed criminalization of cannabis, create a well-regulated legal marijuana market centered around equity, and open up new doors for local entrepreneurs and small business owners. I hope every Marylander will vote yes on Question 4 this November.”
