The Maryland Cannabis Policy Coalition is just one week away from our 2020 cannabis policy lobby day. Be sure to mark your calendars, and join us in solidarity.
When: Tuesday, February 4, 8:30 a.m. – 4:00 p.m.
Where: Anne Arundel Delegation Room, House Office Building — 6 Bladen Street, Annapolis, MD 21401
Registration: Please complete the registration form here to join us. Prior to meeting with your elected officials, we will provide you with a list of relevant legislation, talking points, and lobby tips.
Although we’re disappointed the Maryland General Assembly isn’t planning to take up legalization until 2021, there are several bills under consideration that would reduce the damage done by Maryland’s marijuana laws. Join us to raise your voice for these important reforms, including a bill to increase the decriminalized amount of cannabis from under 10 grams to one ounce (28.5 grams), a bill to automatically expunge past marijuana possession charges, and a bill to protect medical cannabis patients from losing their gun rights.
We need all hands on deck to keep reforming cannabis policy in Maryland! Join us at lobby day to help us send a strong message to the General Assembly to pass cannabis policy reform legislation this session and increase support for adult-use legalization.
Please take a moment to email your legislators and ask them to support legalizing, taxing, and regulation cannabis for adult use. Then, help us spread the word about lobby day by forwarding this message to your friends and family in Maryland and sharing our event on Facebook.
We hope to see you next week!
