Testimony on HB 302, HB 1100, and HB 1101 Related to Medical Use of Marijuana

March 8, 2013

Joint Hearing of the Health and Government Operations Committee and the Judiciary Committee

March 8, 2013

Joshua M. Sharfstein, M.D.

Secretary, Maryland Department of Health and Mental Hygiene

Thank you for the opportunity to testify on several proposals related to the use of marijuana for medical purposes in Maryland. In 2011, a workgroup that was convened as a result of legislation developed two alternate proposals for legislative consideration. These proposals are reflected in HB 1100 and HB 1101.

In my testimony, I will review these two proposals and HB 302. The Department supports HB 1101 with amendments and opposes HB 302 and HB 1100.
