Did you know that Maryland has a compassionate use medical marijuana law? The video below describes how it works. The important thing to know is that Maryland medical marijuana law applies only in very limited circumstances. And then it doesn’t make possession of marijuana legal for the medical marijuana user. Instead, it reduces the maximum possible penalty for patients to a $100 fine. This means that under Maryland medical marijuana law patients are found guilty of crime for using medical marijuana.
