A Maryland House working group tasked with studying marijuana and preparing a legalization referendum that the speaker wants to put on next year’s ballot met for the first time on Wednesday, with members discussing the history of reform throughout the country. The 10-member group, which was appointed by House Speaker Adrienne Jones (D) earlier this year, will be looking at the issue from a variety of perspectives as lawmakers continue to pursue reform in the Free State. At Wednesday’s meeting, the panel talked about their plans to work over the next year crafting legislation to implement a regulated marijuana market so it will be ready for the 2023 session if voters approve the legalization referendum next November.
