Nehemiah Bester

ACLU of Maryland

Starting on July 1st, 2023, marijuana will officially become legalized for recreational use in Maryland for adults 21 and up.

On this episode we’ll examine that question and see if marijuana reparations are possible for those communities most harmed by The War on Drugs – a war whose ramifications are still felt today.
