Maryland cannabusiness was recently given a significant boost by new legislation. This past April, Maryland’s governor signed a medical marijuana reform bill into law. The new MD marijuana law improves upon an older bill, which opponents claimed was essentially useless because it was so restrictive. The new law provides for the legalization of cannabis for usage by patients who have debilitating medical conditions.
As you’ll learn by watching this video, the new law allows licensed physicians who are on staff at a hospital or hospice program to prescribe medical marijuana for patients who meet certain criteria. Not only will it give the state’s cannabusiness a boost, but the law is also expected to help patients who are critically ill.
