Governor To Sign Marijuana Legislation Monday

April 12th, 2014 by WCBC Radio

Governor Martin O'Malley will make good on a promise to sign a marijuana decriminalization bill, and he will do it in a bill signing ceremony on Monday morning.

The bill is on a list of bills that the governor will sign that were approved in the legislative session that ended on Monday night.

The bill reduces the penalties for possessing less than 10-grams of marijuana from 90-days in jail to civil fines starting at $100.

The governor is also expected to sign "Jake's Law" which imposes a one year jail term on any driver who is talking or texting on a handheld phone, who then causes an accident resulting in injury or death.

The governor will also sign a series of bills that were on his agenda this year to strengthen domestic violence laws
