"The State of Marijuana Laws" Updated—Maryland and Missouri Pass Recreational Use in Professional Liability Insurance


Recently, state legislation was approved making recreational use of marijuana legal in Maryland (effective on July 1, 2023) and Missouri (effective on December 8, 2022). Federal law continues to classify marijuana as an illegal, Schedule I drug.
