2023 POLICY RECOMMENDATIONS
Excerpted from ASA's 2022 State of the States Report.
In 2023, ASA strongly encourages policymakers to tread carefully as they work to implement the adult-use/recreational market. Medical and adult-use/recreational program needs should not be considered the same as medical, and the consumer populations within each group are distinct, with their own needs.
An adult-use/recreational program alone is not sufficient for medical cannabis patients, and lawmakers must ensure that the adult-use/recreational market is separate from the medical cannabis market, and policymakers must continue to make improvements on the medical side for patients. In light of the new adult-use/recreational laws, Maryland should also focus on passing provisions included in ASA’s Medical Cannabis Equity Checklist.
