Maryland Governor Wes Moore signed several bills on Wednesday including new laws dealing with issues including transgender equity, healthcare, and abortion access. Recreational marijuana legislation goes into effect July 1 and will allow adults age 21 and older the ability to legally possess up to 1.5 ounces of marijuana.  It was revealed on Tuesday that the governor has $1.2 million dollars in stock in a cannabis company. That investment is now being handled in a blind trust to prevent a conflict of interest.
