Maryland regulators have made changes to the medical marijuana program to make it easier for patients to renew their medical marijuana IDs and reduce the cost of ID cards, which could increase the number of patients and boost more dispensary sales. According to the Baltimore Business Journal, the Maryland Medical Marijuana Commission took action to extend the validity of ID cards from three to six years and reduce the price of the cards from $50 to $25. These potential improvements to Maryland's medical marijuana program come after efforts to legalize recreational marijuana failed this year: the legalization bill failed to meet a deadline to advance from one legislative chamber to another. Adult-use measures that include a focus on social equity and diversity in the industry got stuck in committee.
