The state of Maryland has legalized recreational marijuana.
Many people in the state were happy with the decision. They noted that it would allow for more tax revenue.
In the Free State, legislators enacted a constitutional amendment that allows people over 21 to use marijuana.
Opponents of the initiative noted that it could lead to the legalization of marijuana and eventually lead to the possession of the drug by children.
19 states in the U.S. allow recreational marijuana use. 37 states permit medical use only.
The new law is to take effect next year July.
