ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP) — The Maryland House has advanced legislation to legalize recreational marijuana in the state, if voters approve a constitutional amendment in November.
The House gave preliminary approval Wednesday to two separate bills. The first would put the matter on the ballot. The second includes steps that would be taken on moving forward if voters approve, though issues relating to licensing and taxation would be taken up next year. A final House vote is expected Friday and the Maryland Senate would still need to approve the legislation.
A separate measure is pending in the Senate that would not require a constitutional amendment.
