Medical Marijuana in Maryland – Good News, Bad News

Maryland legalized the use of medicinal marijuana in 2003. However, marijuana possession is still a crime in Maryland. The maximum penalty for possession of marijuana is a fine of $1,000 or one year in jail or both.


Unfortunately, the statute does not stop a court from entering a finding of guilt against such a defendant, even if he or she has a legitimate medical necessity for possessing marijuana.
