The Maryland House of Delegates voted 78-55 Saturday to decriminalize possession of small amounts of marijuana. This new bill would eliminate criminal charges for possession less than 10 grams. This is great news for supporters in Maryland.
It’s not a law yet, but it’s right on the edge. If the governor goes along, getting busted for pot won’t mean jail, provided those joints don’t contain too much marijuana.
Right now in Maryland, if you’re caught with enough marijuana to roll one joint or enough to fill a greenhouse, it’s a criminal offense.
