Maryland Senate President Supports Legalization | Maryland -- The move to legalize marijuana in Maryland has a powerful ally: Senate President Thomas V. Mike Miller Jr. Miller (D-Calvert), who has presided over his chamber for more than a quarter century, said in an interview Friday that he would support legislation allowing the regulated sale of marijuana, similar to what is now taking place in Colorado. “I favor the legalization and taxation of marijuana, with restrictions,” Miller said, adding that he thinks his position will only grow in popularity in coming years. “I know where people are going to be a generation or two from now.” Miller was less confident, however, at the prospect of a bill passing in the 90-day legislative session that starts next week. While he said a legalization bill would stand a good chance in the Senate, he thinks the odds are much longer in the House and said that Gov. Martin O’Malley (D) — who rose to prominence as a tough-on-crime mayor of Baltimore — is “always slow on issues like this.” >> Read more   >> here <<


Mizeur To Propose Legalization of Marijuana | Maryland -- Maryland Democratic gubernatorial hopeful Heather R. Mizeur on Tuesday will propose legalizing marijuana and using the tax revenue it generates to fund pre-kindergarten education, according to an advance copy of her plan. Mizeur, a Montgomery County delegate who faces Lt. Gov. Anthony G. Brown and Attorney General Douglas F. Gansler in next year’s Democratic primary, proposes that Maryland regulate marijuana much like it does alcohol. She estimates that taxing the drug could yield up to $157.5 million in new revenue for the state each year. Adults ages 21 and over would be permitted to possess up to an ounce of marijuana without violating state law under Mizeur’s plan, a copy of which was shared with The Washington Post. Smoking marijuana would not be allowed in public, and it would be illegal to drive under the influence. “Marijuana’s time as a controlled, illegal substance has run its course,” Mizeur says in her plan. “Marijuana laws ruin lives, are enforced with racial bias and distract law enforcement from serious and violent crimes. … A Maryland with legalized, regulated and taxed marijuana will mean safer communities, universal early childhood education and fewer citizens unnecessarily exposed to our criminal justice system.” >> Read more   >> here <<


Maryland: Medical Marijuana Measure Re-Introduced | Legislation to allow for the physician-authorized use of cannabis is pending before state lawmakers. Representative Cheryl Glenn has filed legislation, House Bill 302, to enact statewide legal protections for qualified patients who are authorized by their physician to engage in cannabis therapy. The proposal seeks to establish a network of state-regulated compassion centers to provide cannabis to patients. Qualified patients would also be able to grow specified quantities of cannabis in private. You can view the full text of this proposal >> Read more   >> here <<


House Committee Fails to Act on Measure to Tax and Regulate Marijuana | Members of the Maryland House Committee on the Judiciary failed to vote on House Bill 1453 prior to the end of the 2013 legislative session. House Bill 1453 sought to legalize and regulate the adult use of marijuana. The Committee held a public hearing on the measure on Tuesday, March 19 with representatives from NORML, MPP, NAACP, LEAP, and the ACLU testifying in favor of the measure, but leadership never called it for a vote. You can read the text of NORML’s written testimony in favor the measure >> Read more   >> here <<


Folks, You need to check out House Bill 302 in Maryland. If passed, just may finally bring Maryland in line with other MMJ states.

Because, Maryland General Assembly adjourns in 2012 without passing caregiver protections

Maryland, News - Maryland General Assembly adjourns without passing caregiver protections Last Update: May 30, 2012 | Last year, MPP and our allies helped pass legislation giving patients an affirmative defense against charges of possessing marijuana. Plans were in place to expand on that law by providing for regulated access to marijuana, but after a veto threat from Gov. O’Malley, the legislature declined to pass carefully crafted legislation drafted by a workgroup of experts prior to the session. It’s not all bad news though. Two bills that reduce the penalty for possession of less than 10 grams of marijuana and allow those charged with possession of marijuana to avoid being jailed while awaiting bail did pass and were signed by Gov. O'Malley. You can read MPP’s summary of marijuana policy reform in Maryland in 2012 by clicking here >>   Visit - http://www.mpp.org/states/maryland/ Click > here < for more News.

Status of Medical Marijuana (Cannabis) in Maryland.

  Info on Maryland and Medical Cannabis 

Maryland has a MEDICAL MARIJUANA (cannabis) LAW, But it is In-Effective. See below for efforts to change this.

SUMMARY: Maryland's legislature passed a medical marijuana affirmative defense law in 2003. This law requires the court to consider a defendant's use of medical marijuana to be a mitigating factor in marijuana-related state prosecution. If the patient, post-arrest, successfully makes the case at trial that his or her use of marijuana is one of medical necessity, then the maximum penalty allowed by law would be a $100 fine.

Maryland - Status, current As of June 1, 2011, patients whose doctors have diagnosed them with a debilitating medical condition (including a condition that is “severe and resistant to conventional medicine”) can assert the medical use of marijuana as an affirmative defense. In addition to having a debilitating condition, patients will need to show that the doctor who made the diagnosis was one with whom the patient has an ongoing, bona-fide physician-patient relationship, and that marijuana is likely to provide him or her with therapeutic or palliative relief. Finally, the defense Is not available to anyone in possession of more than one ounce of marijuana or who uses marijuana in a public place. For patients who don’t qualify for the full affirmative defense, there is also a sentencing mitigation whereby, upon conviction, he or she can present evidence of “medical necessity.” If the court agrees, the maximum penalty that can be imposed is a $100 fine.

AMENDMENT(s):   Yes

    Amended: Senate Bill 308, signed into law on May 10, 2011, removes fines and criminal penalties for citizens who successfully raise an 'affirmative defense' in court establishing that they possessed limited amounts (one ounce or less) of marijuana for medical purposes. Citizens who cultivate cannabis or who possess larger amounts of marijuana may still raise an affirmative defense at trial and, if successful, will have their sentence mitigated.

    Amended: House Bill 1101, signed into law on May 2, 2013, establishes an independent, 12-member medical marijuana commission within the state Department of Health. The commission will request applications from Maryland academic medical centers to operate 'medical marijuana compassionate use programs.' Members of the commission will decide which patients will qualify for the programs and will license growers to provide cannabis for therapeutic purposes. The law took effect on October 1, 2013. However, no state-sanctioned research programs are expected to be operational until 2015 or later.

MARYLAND'S MEDICAL MARIJUANA LAW IS BROKEN!

Maryland - Action, Change It's True. Medical marijuana patients are treated like criminals in Maryland. They can still be arrested, prosecuted, and convicted - even if they possess a doctor's recommendation. Marylanders who suffer from serious or chronic disease deserve a law that works. Support access to an effective medicine and real protections for patients. We are not criminals. We ­are mothers, fathers, sisters, employees, and business owners. We take care of our families, we pay taxes, and we vote. Help us fix Maryland's medical marijuana law.

Maryland - Action, Change ASA MoCo Chapter History Since 2007, ASA chapters in MD have hosted numerous meetings, provided trainings and teach-ins across the state, organized art parties, and created a public presence by attending street festivals in Bethesda, Wheaton, Fell’s Point, and outside the M&T Bank Stadium during the Baltimore Ravens’ home games – all to spread awareness about medical cannabis and to recruit new members. The chapters worked with the Drug Policy Alliance to promote the Maryland Patients for Access campaign, designed to build grassroots support and identify potential leadership for upcoming reform efforts. In addition to public awareness sessions, the ASA chapters have hosted spokesperson and media trainings, making Marylanders better informed about of the vulnerabilities that patient’s face and how to navigate law enforcement encounters.

Maryland - Action, Change ASA MARYLAND EVENTS | HB 1339 Introduced - Call your State Delegates! Delegate Henry Heller (D-Montgomery County) introduced legislation, HB 1339, that creates a task force to study the issues related to medical marijuana throughout the state of Maryland. If the bill passes, the State Department of Health and Mental Hygiene would be required to staff a Governor-appointed task force to evaluate whether the current state law is effective, fair, and equally enforced across all state jurisdictions in addition to other issues concerning the limited, therapeutic use of cannabis. Visit - http://www.safeaccessnow.org/article.php?id=280


ACTION; There are a number of medical cannabis (marijuana) bills in play in states across the US. Here we network on Ways anyone can help with the effort to make each a medical marijuana state. We need to get the word out and people contacting reps and officials and get this legislation into law. Also, lets not forget efforts at the Federal level.

Current Law

SUMMARY: The "Darrell Putman" Bill -- Resolution #0756-2003 -- Approved in the state senate by a vote of 29-17. Signed into law by Gov. Robert L. Ehrlich, Jr. on May 22, 2003 Effective: Oct. 1, 2003 | Maryland's legislature passed a medical marijuana affirmative defense law in 2003. The law allows defendents being prosecuted for the use or possession of marijuana to introduce evidence of medical necessity and physician approval, to be considered by the court as a mitigating factor. This law requires the court to consider a defendant's use of medical marijuana to be a mitigating factor in marijuana-related state prosecution. If the patient, post-arrest, successfully makes the case at trial that his or her use of marijuana is one of medical necessity, then the maximum penalty allowed by law would be a $100 fine. The law, however, does not protect users of medical marijuana from arrest or establish a registry program, or allowing growing, etc.   See - Senate Bill 502 (PDF 72 KB), MEDICAL MARIJUANA STATUTES: Maryland Darnell Putman Compassionate Use Act, §5-601(3)(II) (2003).

Maryland Cases Show Law's Flaws, Activists Say

Maryland's medical marijuana law worked as intended in two cases this month, but activists say the cases show the problems with the law and have vowed to press for changes. Each of the cases involved a seriously ill patient - including one who is a founding member of the local chapter of Americans for Safe Access -- who received $100 fines and misdemeanor convictions after demonstrating that their doctors had recommended cannabis for their conditions.

"ASA-Maryland is more committed than ever to changing our state's medical marijuana law," said Tony Bowles, the chapter's spokesperson. "We should not be wasting the limited resources of the state on multi-day trials that result in a simple $100 fine. The law should provide better protection for patients and direction for law enforcement." In the unrelated cases, each patient had been charged with felony possession with intent to distribute. Maryland law still classifies medical use of marijuana as a criminal offense, but limits the punishment to misdemeanor possession with a fine of $100.

One case involved a woman who uses cannabis to control her epilepsy, the other a man who suffers from a condition that causes episodes of severe vomiting that require hospitalization. The woman's attorney told reporters that he was unaware of Maryland's medical marijuana law prior to taking the case, but nonetheless successfully argued in court that she should be covered by presenting medical studies showing that epilepsy can be controlled with cannabis.

In the other case, the judge refused to allow a medical necessity defense or any mention of the patient's condition at trial, though the cannabis seized by police was clearly labeled "For Medicinal Use Only," and the man has written recommendations from two physicians, including to a gastro-intestinal specialist who noted that no other medication is effective. That medical evidence was allowed at a sentencing hearing, and ASA's Director of Government Affairs, Caren Woodson, also testified to his long-standing activism as a medical cannabis patient.

"ASA is happy that patients and defense attorneys are able to get reduced sentences in Maryland," said Woodson. "But no one who uses cannabis in accordance with a physician's recommendation should be treated as a criminal by law enforcement or subjected to fines or any other penalties."

Maryland - Information The LAW - Informational link (INF) The Law. Maryland's legislature passed a medical marijuana affirmative defense law in 2003. This law requires the court to consider a defendant's use of medical marijuana to be a mitigating factor in marijuana-related state prosecution. If the patient, post-arrest, successfully makes the case at trial that his or her use of marijuana is one of medical necessity, then the maximum penalty allowed by law would be a $100 fine. Visit > http://www.norml.org/index.cfm?Group_ID=4542&wtm_view=medical < for more.

Maryland - Information Info (ORG) Becoming A Patient. Since Maryland only provides an affirmative defense in court for medical marijuana patients, there is no real process for becoming a patient other than receiving a valid doctor's recommendation. Therefore, there is no registration fee, identification card, or list of eligible medical conditions provided.

Maryland - Information News (INF) from MarijuanaNews.Com, where Freedom has nothing to fear from the truth. “Of course, as often as not, the police have such a strangle hold on the politicians that they still end up doing the wrong thing, or as in Maryland, a parody of the right thing. It would appear that Maryland is about to enact a “medical cannabis” bill, which demonstrates that the quality of mercy is not merely strained, it is severely herniated. Patients will be subject only to a fine of $100! Whoopdee do! The line for groveling starts on the right.

I do not mean to belittle in any way the hard work of the people who managed to squeeze even this little blood from the stone hearts of the appalling people who govern us, but how can anyone vote for a fine for a sick person using a plant? If they really need the plant, that is cruel, and if they don’t need it, then why do anything? There is at least one good thing about the bill, however. The Drug Czar does not like it.” See more at: http://www.marijuananews.com/news.php3?sid=651.

Places that have decriminalized non-medical cannabis in the United States Places that have decriminalized non-medical cannabis in the United States - From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia | Multiple places have decriminalized non-medical cannabis in the United States; however, cannabis is illegal under federal law. Gonzales v. Raich (2005) held in a 6-3 decision that the Commerce Clause of the United States Constitution allowed the federal government to ban the use of cannabis, including medical use even if local laws allow it. Most places that have decriminalized cannabis have civil fines, drug education, or drug treatment in place of incarceration and/or criminal charges for possession of small amounts of cannabis, or have made various cannabis offenses the lowest priority for law enforcement.

Maryland, News - Gov. O'Malley signs decriminalization, medical marijuana bills into law! Gov. O'Malley signs decriminalization, medical marijuana bills into law! - Last Update: April 17, 2014 | On April 14, Gov. Martin O’Malley signed legislation to remove criminal penalties from possession of small amounts of marijuana, along with twin bills that will finally provide qualifying patients with safe access to medical marijuana. Beginning on October 1, 2014, the decriminalization bill (SB 364) will impose civil fines — not criminal penalties and possible jail time — on those possessing less than 10 grams of marijuana. Details are available here. Thank you to our allies and champions in the General Assembly! >>   Visit - http://www.mpp.org/states/maryland/

The new law to convert the state’s medical marijuana law into one that works will go into effect on June 1. The state’s 2013 medical marijuana law relies on teaching hospitals to get involved in the distribution of marijuana. Unsurprisingly, none have done so. Delegates Cheryl Glenn and Dan Morhaim and Sen. Jamie Raskin sponsored SB 923 and HB 881, which will fix this by allowing dispensaries and cultivators to provide medical marijuana directly to patients whose physicians recommend medical marijuana.

A Fall 2013 poll commissioned by the ACLU and MPP found that Maryland voters not only overwhelmingly support decriminalizing marijuana, a majority also think it’s time to legalize, regulate, and tax marijuana. Sen. Jamie Raskin and Del. Curt Anderson introduced legislation to do just that, but unfortunately neither bill advanced out of committee. If you support regulating marijuana, please ask your legislators to take marijuana off the criminal market and tax and regulate it similarly to alcohol. We’re optimistic that the Free State will be among the first state legislatures to take marijuana off the criminal market and regulate it.

MPP is proud to be a member of the Marijuana Policy Coalition of Maryland, which is leading the charge for sensible marijuana policy in Maryland. This large and growing coalition includes the ACLU of Maryland, Law Enforcement Against Prohibition, the League of Women Voters of Maryland, the Marijuana Policy Project, UFCW Local 400, the Maryland State Conference of NAACP Branches, and more than a dozen other organizations.

Professionally, I have studied the science of marijuana and its compounds as therapeutic agents since 1995. I have done this both as NORML's research director and also as a research consultant for London's GW Pharmaceuticals - the only company legally licensed in the world to grow medical marijuana and perform human patient trials on various preparations of sublingual cannabis extracts.

Medical Cannabis, History - Letter: Medical Marijuana Informational Guide on Medical Cannabis | If you have ever heard of the song, “Lets Go Get Stoned,” as sung by Ray Charles or Joe Cocker, you know the lyrics were referring to getting high or using cannabis aka marijuana. This mind altering drug goes by other names as well; names such as weed, pot, joint, blunt, hash and mary jane are quite common among users. Cannabis is a plant that contains a chemical called cannabinoids or cannabinolidic acids. Another substance that is found in cannabis is THC, or Tetrahydrocannabinol, which gives the users that “high” sensation. When speaking of marijuana, the actual substance used in creating the high feeling comes from the leaves and flowering tops of the cannabis plant. Marijuana is considered to be a schedule 1 controlled substance today, because of the THC, which can be highly potent, depending upon the concentration factor of the THC.

Medical Cannabis - Proven : Cannabis is Safe Medicine Proven : Cannabis is Safe Medicine by Ian Williams Goddard | In reaction to medical cannabis access referendums on the ballots in Arizona and California, former presidents Gerald Ford, Jimmy Carter, and George Bush signed a letter stating that they "categorically oppose'' access to cannabis for its many proven therapeutic uses such as the prevention of blindness and epileptic seizures. Their chief concern was that legal medical access would send the message that cannabis is safe. The presidents can, however, lay their safety concerns to rest because the scientific literature overwhelmingly confirms that cannabis is both an effective and safe medicine. The Cannabis Safety Profile. The journal PHARMACOLOGICAL REVIEWS reports that decades of research prove that, "Compared with legal drugs...marijuana does not pose greater risks." Yet based upon mortality statistics, we can safely conclude that cannabis is one of the safest medical drugs known, for, while prescription drugs, defined as safe by the FDA, kill up to 27,000 and aspirin up to 1,000 Americans per year, cannabis kills 0 per year.

Maryland - Medical Dictionary on Cannabis Medical Dictionary on Cannabis $48.95 - CANNABIS A Bibliography, Medical Dictionary, and Annotated Research Guide to Internet References   (marijuana)   A Bibliography, Medical Dictionary, and Annotated Research Guide to Internet References on Cannabis. Pages : 268, Price : $48.95(USD) ISBN : 0597835675 Published : 2003

Synopsis: In March 2001, the National Institutes of Health issued the following warning: "The number of Web sites offering health-related resources grows every day. Many sites provide valuable information, while others may have information that is unreliable or misleading."  Furthermore, because of the rapid increase in Internet-based information, many hours can be wasted searching, selecting, and printing. Since only the smallest fraction of information dealing with cannabis is indexed in search engines, such as www.google.com or others, a non-systematic approach to Internet research can be not only time consuming, but also incomplete. This book was created for medical professionals, students, and members of the general public who want to conduct medical research using the most advanced tools available and spending the least amount of time doing so.

Description: This is a 3-in-1 reference book. It gives a complete medical dictionary covering hundreds of terms and expressions relating to cannabis. It also gives extensive lists of bibliographic citations.  Finally, it provides information to users on how to update their knowledge using various Internet resources. The book is designed for physicians, medical students preparing for Board examinations, medical researchers, and patients who want to become familiar with research dedicated to cannabis. If your time is valuable, this book is for you. First, you will not waste time searching the Internet while missing a lot of relevant information. Second, the book also saves you time indexing and defining entries. Finally, you will not waste time and money printing hundreds of web pages.

Excerpt (Introduction). In addition to offering a structured and comprehensive bibliography, this medical reference on cannabis will quickly direct you to resources and reliable information on the Internet, from the essentials to the most advanced areas of research.  Public, academic, government, and peer-reviewed research studies are emphasized. Various abstracts are reproduced to give you some of the latest official information available to date. Abundant guidance is given on how to obtain free-of-charge primary research results via the Internet. E-book and electronic versions of this book are fully interactive with the Internet. For readers unfamiliar with the Internet, detailed instructions are offered on how to access electronic resources. For readers unfamiliar with medical terminology, a comprehensive glossary is provided. For readers without access to Internet resources, a directory of medical libraries, that have or can locate references cited here, is given. We hope these resources will prove useful to the widest possible audience seeking information on cannabis. visit: http://www.icongrouponline.com/health/Cannabis_ph.html

She was later jailed and charged with disorderly conduct. Three days later, during a bail review in court, a bailiff found a small amount of marijuana on her when she passed through security scanners, police said. She was cited for marijuana possession.

If you haven't yet written your state legislators, please take the time to and express your support for the passing of SB308 and HB291 this session. The time is NOW, but only if YOU HELP by contacting your legislators and lett them know how important these bills are to you, your health, your family and also to the state of Maryland!

Without the passing of Medical Marijuana legislation this year, I won't be alone in moving to another state that recognizes the medical science and benefits of allowing qualifying patients in need access to clean, unadulterated medicine!

Thank you . . . "

Subject: DEA raids on MS patients in MD
Date: Tue, 09 May 2006

Hello Pot-TV,

I am 21 and have lived in Maryland all my life. My mother was diagnosed with MS 30 years ago, she is currently 52. The whole time I have known my mother she has had MS, I've helped her with the battle the whole time. For a certain duration she could only be in a wheel chair, also MS has destroyed the optic nerve in her right eye leaving her blind. The doctors always put her on these poisen pills that put her way out in left field and they do alot of harm to her body. At one point my mother was on 10-8 meds and I was giving her injections of Avonex weekly. In the past 3-4 years my mother has been vaping and smoking medical cannabis. Pot-TV, I know and have seen the drastic turn around this plant can do for MS patients on a day to day bases. My mother is down to 2 pills now that she uses Medical cannabis. We can go out and do things like we were never able to do before my whole life of growing up. I am telling this all to you, Pot-TV, becasue in the past week a terrible event have taken place, that has put my mother MS in a terrible state.

On May 2nd in Bel Air Maryland, 15 DEA agents broke into my mothers house while she was going to answer the door. No faces, balaclavas. Drawn guns. Purple laytex gloves. The first thing my mother does is falls back and she goes in the fetal position with her arms rapped around herself tightly. My mother was having a severe MS attack. They drag her up a flight of stairs to the kitchen where they lay her on the floor.

They start drilling her with questions while she is having the attack "WHATS IN THE HOUSE?" All my mother could only just keep repeating is that she use Medical cannabis for her MS and tells them they will find some here. So they just leave her on the floor having the attack and start to tearing the house to apart. They take all here Medcical cannabis, glass art pipes and even some of here pharmaceutical meds. None of the DEA would have called an ambulace.

But thank god my father showed he was out getting a hair cut and showed up about a half an hour after this all happened first thing my father did is say "has anyone called an ambulance for my wife?! She is having an MS attack!" My father is a registered nurse (RN). The DEA would not even let him pick the phone up to call, eventually after they thought he was telling the truth they called. After this event my mother now can only walk with cane, and she has full body tremors. I'm telling this all to you Pot-TV, because I don't know who else to tell. I think your the one in the state of Maryland that would understand our situation the most. But I want the whole world to know what the DEA has done to my mother just for using cannabis to take the edge off the MS sword.

My mother is a Poet&Artist she does not deserve this. If you can help us please let us know, the day time phone (410)803-9469 is my mothers feel free to call it and talk to her I think it might make her feel alot better.

Thanks for taking the time to listen, Pot-TV, I have the feeling deep down inside that you will pull through and that this case will be a stepping stone to the complete and total legalization of medical cannabis with providers and MMJ clubs in the State of Maryland, we will set an example for the whole east coast to follow.
