Report to Senate President & House Speaker due Dec. 31, 2019.

In February 2019, the Marijuana Legalization Work Group was convened by the Senate President and House Speaker.

The Work Group is to consider all the issues concerning legalization of marijuana, including the impact on the health of Marylanders and the criminal justice system. Further, it will examine how to regulate legal marijuana, and how to structure both taxing and licensing its sale. The effect of legalization on federal tax and banking laws will be studied by the Work Group, as will the potential for small, minority and women-owned business participation.

Due December 31, 2019, the Work Group's report is expected to provide a basis for legislation in the 2020 legislative session.
