Maryland began selling recreational marijuana in July, just eight months after voters in the state backed a ballot measure to legalize marijuana for adults.
The first day of recreational marijuana sales drew a line of customers to the state’s marijuana distribution shops, which passed a bill in the spring to regulate the market for adult marijuana use.
According to Forbes, Maryland voters in November passed a fourth issue state referendum to legalize recreational marijuana, which passed with nearly two-thirds of the vote.
In April, lawmakers passed a bill regulating the production and sale of marijuana for adult use, effective July 1 and then signed into law by Gov. Wes Moore in early May.
Under the bill, adults in Maryland who are 21 and older and have legal identification will be allowed to buy regulated marijuana products, including cannabis flowers, e-cigarettes, gummy candy and more, with sales starting at existing medical marijuana retailers in the state.
The bill also changes the name of the Maryland Medical Marijuana Commission to the Maryland Cannabis Administration, which regulates the production and sale of marijuana.
Will Tilburg, acting director of the new agency, said marijuana sales in Maryland are expected to triple in the next year as recreational marijuana sales take off.
