Anne Arundel County Executive Proposes Bill to Ban Medical Marijuana

Anne Arundel County Executive Steve Schuh is proposing a bill to ban the growing, processing and dispensing medical marijuana in the County. As reported in The Baltimore Sun:

The bill would prohibit cultivating and selling medical marijuana under the county’s farming and pharmacy provisions, according to a draft of the bill provided by the administration. A state measure allows local jurisdictions to decide how to implement the medical marijuana law through planning and zoning codes, in which farms and pharmacies fall.

Under Anne Arundel County code, growing and processing medical marijuana is allowed under the county’s farming provisions — or pretty much anywhere.

The bill Schuh is set to announce Monday would eliminate the processing and sale of marijuana on many levels, including removing marijuana from the county’s farming provision and prohibiting the processing and sale of marijuana in commercial, industrial, maritime and residential districts.
