Days could be taken speculating over why the Maryland Senate took until near the end of its legislative session which ended yesterday — and why the House of Delegates did not vote on the bill — to pass a medical marijuana bill (see the text here ) that legalizes medical marijuana use, as opposed to the current state law that just limits medical marijuana to a $100 fine if the defendant proves medical necessity.

This bill will certainly return to the Maryland legislature next year, and hopefully it will pass with as much teeth as possible.
