A work group within the Maryland House of Delegates that is studying how to potentially legalize recreational marijuana in the state met for the first time Wednesday, laying out plans for the year ahead.
The 10-member group was appointed by House Speaker Adrienne Jones, D-Baltimore County, who recently said that she supports putting a referendum on the November 2022 ballot that would allow voters to approve legalizing the drug.
Recreational pot has already been legalized in D.C. and 17 states, including Virginia.
Maryland decriminalized the possession of small amounts of marijuana, but recreational use remains illegal.
