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.
