Medical marijuana in Maryland has been a mess ever since they passed their highly restrictive “pilot program” last year. See, the program would only allow state university medical programs to dole out the ganja, and even then it had to be part of a larger clinical trial. In theory, that might have worked. But the reality is that none of the universities want anything to do with it. Basically, medical marijuana didn’t exist in Maryland.
But a new bill approved by the state House yesterday would allow physicians to recommend medical cannabis to patients with certain conditions. Patients would get their herb from a licensed grower.
Under the guise of helping sick patients find relief, Maryland created the country’s most restrictive medical marijuana program last year that limits distribution to people who sign up for university-run studies licensed through the state. The program is so strict that many medical marijuana advocacy groups don’t consider Maryland to be a true medical marijuana state.
Lawmakers were quick to pat themselves on the back for being so progressive, but nearly a year later the reality is that the program has gone nowhere and sick Marylanders are still without access to legal medical marijuana.
