Welcome to Maryland NORML!

The Maryland state chapter of the National Organization for Reform of Marijuana Laws educates the public and grows the movement toward marijuana legalization in Maryland.

We provide education and resources to empower the citizens of Maryland to work with the General Assembly to ensure proper cannabis legalization for adults.

On August 16, 2016 the Maryland Medical Cannabis Commission awarded 15 licenses out of 146 applicants to grow medical cannabis and 15 licenses out of 124 applicants for processing medical cannabis. Seven organizations were awarded both grower and processing licenses. 

 The Maryland Medical Cannabis Commission expects dispensaries to be open by the end of 2017 and promises patients will be able to begin the registration process during the first quarter of 2017.

For more important information concerning the Maryland Medical Cannabis Program please go to  Maryland Medical Cannabis Commission Website.
