The state of Maryland has legalized recreational marijuana.

BREAKING: Maryland voted to legalize recreational marijuana and possession up to 1.5oz for people 21+.

It will also create a path to expunge or re-sentence convictions. In MD, police are ~3x more likely to arrest Black people for marijuana despite equal use among white people. pic.twitter.com/SUgOFmIIAN
