Premier Criminal Defense & Personal Injury Legal Advocacy In Maryland
Zealous And Effective Representation For CBD, Marijuana And Hemp Violation Charges
While Maryland has decriminalized possession of small amounts of marijuana and marijuana paraphernalia and the smoking of marijuana in public for people age 21 and older, the state has not fully legalized recreational use of it as some states have. People may be fined (as in the case of traffic tickets and similar civil infractions) for possession of 10 grams or less. Others are still arrested and jailed for infractions involving amounts over 10 grams. Laws are continually in flux in our state and elsewhere, but law enforcement continues. Thomas Maronick Jr zealously defends people charged with marijuana violations and other drug crimes.
Medical use of marijuana is another story. Beginning in 2013, Maryland has allowed the production and distribution of medicinal marijuana or derivatives – first in academic medical centers only. Next came the issuing of dispensary licenses allowing business owners to grow marijuana and manufacture products from it, such as pills and oils. Medical professionals also became able to certify patients as eligible for medical marijuana use. According to a Wikipedia article, by the fall of 2019, “Maryland had 18 licensed growers, 82 licensed dispensaries, and 70,000 registered patients.”
