(Early voting ended November 3).

Legalizing Cannabis:

After a session-long debate about cannabis legalization  frameworks this past spring, the Maryland General  Assembly voted to put a cannabis legalization question  on the ballot this fall. 

If the referendum is approved, Maryland residents 21  and older can possess up to 1.5 ounces of cannabis  starting January 1, 2023. More than half of Maryland  residents support the legalization, according to a March  2022 Goucher College poll. Some advocacy groups, and  activists, hope state cannabis legalization will alleviate  the disproportionate impact of nonviolent drug  convictions for Marylanders. 

State Legislator Residencies:

If Maryland residents approve Question Two on their  ballots, on November 8, state legislative candidates will  be required to maintain their primary residences in the  legislative districts they represent (for at least six  months before the date of an election or for as long as  a district has been in existence).

According to Ballotpedia, currently, state legislative  candidates must have residences in the districts they  want to represent (at least six months prior to the  election, or for as long as the district has been in  existence); but, they do not have to maintain primary residences in those districts. The state constitutional  amendment would also change the amended section to  gender-neutral language. This ballot initiative will take  effect January 1, 2024, if passed.

Maryland Court of Appeals Name Change:

If voters pass Question One in November,  Maryland’s Court of Appeals will be  renamed the Supreme Court of Maryland;  and, the Maryland Court of Special Appeals would  become the Appellate Court of Maryland. Maryland and New York are the only states which do  not refer to their top court as the Supreme Court.
