Cannabis Reform

Many Marylanders know about the adverse effects that the War on Drugs and other faux campaigns have had on communities of color. This legislation will allow people to apply for a license to sell both medical and recreational cannabis. The tax rate on cannabis will be kept low to discourage illegal sales, but the revenue collected will be used specifically to help support communities that have been negatively affected by the prohibition of cannabis. The application process for licenses will be made fairer to give people from these communities an equal chance to apply. This includes low application fees, priority consideration in the licensing process, technical assistance from the state, and grants and loans to help start new businesses.


Income Tax - Subtraction Modification for Military Retirement Income (Keep Our Heroes Home Act)

The Act aims to encourage military veterans to retire in the state by increasing the exemption from $5,000 to $12,500 for individuals under the age of 55 and from $15,000 to $20,000 for individuals over the age of 55. Through this legislation, Governor Moore has more than doubled the tax exemption that veterans under the age of 55 are eligible for.


Health Care for Heroes Act of 2023

Maryland is taking the lead in the nation by securing health care for our heroes. This bill reimburses members of the National Guard for their health and dental premiums up to $60 dollars per month. This program is a significant step towards supporting our National Guard members and an important tool for recruitment & retention for service members.
