Legislation: The state of Maryland has medical marijuana laws enacted.
Possession or use of any amount of marijuana is punishable by up to one year in jail and a fine of up to $1,000.
For any second or subsequent conviction, the sentence may double from that for a first offense.
Maryland is one of the strictest states in the country. It has a medical marijuana defense (used in court) but it is not on par with the laws of any of the other 10+ medical marijuana states. ” Maryland’s legislature passed a medical marijuana affirmative defense law in 2003. This law requires the court to consider a defendant’s use of medical marijuana to be a mitigating factor in marijuana-related state prosecution. If the patient, post-arrest, successfully makes the case at trial that his or her use of marijuana is one of medical necessity, then the maximum penalty allowed by law would be a $100 fine.” Source: http://www.norml.com/index.cfm?Group_ID=4542&wtm_view=medical
Law enforcement: some cops walking around probably not a good idea to light up down town but if cant be done on property there are some back roads outside of downtown
another reporetr added: ” Rockville is the county seat. If you are downtown, there is either a cop or a camera watching you. Cops are in cars, on foot, and on bikes. BAD news.”
Where to buy marijuana: Stay away from the movie theater area unless you are looking to get busted. It is within a block of courthouses, police HQ, etc…. plus it is surveillance central.
If you are looking for hook-ups, hang around White Flint, any of the metro stations… talk to the stoner people
