House Approves Medical Marijuana Measure

March 25th, 2013 by WCBC Radio

WBAL reports the Maryland House of Delegates passed a measure to allow medical marijuana in the state Monday.

The House voted 108-28 for the bill. The measure now goes to the Senate.
The measure would create a commission to oversee a medical marijuana program at academic medical research centers that decide to participate.
Supporters have been backing the measure for years, but it received an extra boost this year with the support of the state's health secretary.
A participating medical center would be required to specify the medical conditions it would treat and the criteria by which patients would be allowed to participate
