Medical Marijuana Looms On MD Session's Last Day

Posted: Updated:

ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP) - Medical marijuana and a measure addressing legal responsibilities related to dog bites are some of the remaining issues before Maryland lawmakers on the last day of the legislative session.
    
The session is scheduled to end at midnight Monday. Most major bills have already been passed, including: one relating to gun control; a gas tax increase; a Baltimore schools funding plan; and a repeal of the death penalty.
    
The medical marijuana bill will put Maryland on track to have a program at academic medical research centers that decide to participate.
    
The dog-bite measure would change the impact of a court ruling last year that designated pit bulls as an "inherently dangerous" breed.
    
Another bill would give Maryland farmers more certainty about how Chesapeake Bay restoration regulations will affect them.
