Maryland Legislative Session Enters Last Day

ANNAPOLIS, MD (AP) – Maryland lawmakers will address measures related to marijuana and the minimum wage on the last day of their legislative session scheduled to end at midnight tonight. The House approved a marijuana decriminalization bill on Saturday. The state Senate approved a similar bill earlier, but there are some changes senators need to approve to send the bill to Gov. Martin O’Malley. Lawmakers also will be working on differences to get the state’s stalled framework to implement medical marijuana working. The House willalso vote on a bill to raise the minimum wage in increments over several years to $10.10 in July 2018.
