Frederick, Maryland is a lovely city located in western Maryland with plenty of history and things to do. In town, you can find the National Museum of Civil War Medicine which is an interesting look at how injured soldiers were treated. The Schifferstadt Architectural Museum is a unique look at what life was like in the 1700s. The Walkersville Southern Railroad also offers a step back in time with dinner rides on vintage trains. If you’re looking for some time outdoors, head to Gambrill State Park for miles of trails. For more history, go to Monocacy Battlefield to learn about the Civil War.
While we highly recommend a trip to Frederick, it is unfortunately not the most cannabis-friendly city. Maryland legalized medical marijuana in 2014, with the program opening in 2017. The medical marijuana program allows any Maryland resident who has an approved medical condition certified by a participating physician to apply. While the state has decriminalized marijuana, it is still considered illegal. Those caught with less than 10 grams of marijuana will be subject to a fine of $100. Anything between 10 grams and 50 lbs is a misdemeanor subject to fines of $1000 and potentially 1 year of jail time.
