MDMJ Planning Meeting #2


Join MDMJ for our 2nd planning meeting of 2019!

When: July 30th, 2019 from 7:00PM – 8:30PM

Where: We’ve CHANGED the meeting location due to the growing number of attendance! The meeting has been moved to Druid Hill Park, located in Baltimore, Maryland. Booking a pavilion is a first come, first serve deal, so we will do our best to snag the spot at the Columbus Pavilion on Mansion House Drive. Take a right at the fork in the road and the pavilion is directly on your right.

Feel free to bring your own refreshments, lawn chairs or blankets to sit on and umbrellas to block the sun. PLEASE SHARE THIS EVENT WITH YOUR FRIENDS AND IN YOUR GROUPS TO SPREAD THE WORD! It really helps.

Be on the look out for the cannabis flags! That’s where you’ll find us.

MDMJ Conference Call

High friends!!!

The meeting we held in Bethesda last month was a huge success. Thanks to everyone who was able to attend. At the meeting we discussed organizing a lobby day in Annapolis. With a bit of research and a handful of phone calls, our plan is to hold several meetings, conference calls and training sessions up until January 8th 2020, when the new session begins. This gives us plenty of time to prepare, as well as to organize a letter writing campaign to send your delegates expressing why it is important to fully legalize. A spreadsheet has been generated with a list of every delegate in Maryland who did NOT co-sponsor any marijuana legalization legislation last session. Out of 141 Delegates throughout every district in the state, only 30 delegates have either sponsored or co-sponsored legalization bills. It is also very interesting to discover the handfuls of delegates who are part of the Marijuana Legalization Work Group but did not co-sponsor any cannabis legalization bills put through last session by delegates Moon and Luedtke. These are the people we plan to meet with. We must get them on board with our progressive agenda. Without co-sponsors, these bills will go nowhere and cannabis will continue to be illegal to those who need it.

Have you ever shared with your friends or family how cannabis has helped you? Well, we also need you to express your stories to the law makers that represent you. There is no wrong way to tell your story, but we will be holding training sessions so that everyone feels confident and prepared. If you’ve ever felt compelled to get more involved in your community, then now is the time! Legalization is upon us, and it is up to us to win the fight against prohibition.

Our first conference call will be held on Tuesday June 11th from 7:30PM – 8:30PM.

MDMJ May Meeting

MDMJ is coming to a district near YOU! Since Maryland is such a huge state, we will be having meetings throughout the state at least once a month. So let us know where you’d like to see us come next!



Looking to become more involved in your community? Passionate about cannabis being legalized in Maryland? Then this meeting is for you! We realize that with Maryland being such a big state, we need to take the movement to YOU! MDMJ will be holding meetings throughout the state so that everyone who is passionate about this issue, has the opportunity to become an important member in this community organization. Our mission is to LEGALIZE, NORMALIZE, and fight for FREEDOM! Over the last month, several members of DCMJ, MDMJ, and VAMJ have been lobbying on Capitol Hill in Washington, DC for better protections for the consumers. For more information on how these meetings for new legislation went, check out MDMJ on Instagram, Twitter and Facebook. We are so excited to see some new faces and learn what it is that matters most to you with cannabis legalization. This is a community effort so not only is being a voice encouraged, but it is NEEDED! Let’s take back our rights to grow our own cannabis!
