Black law­mak­ers push­ing for ses­sion on med­i­cal pot

The Washington Times Daily - - METRO -

Black law­mak­ers in Mary­land on Wed­nes­day called for a spe­cial ses­sion of the state Leg­is­la­ture, af­ter a bill de­signed to cre­ate diver­sity own­er­ship in the state’s de­vel­op­ing med­i­cal mar­i­juana in­dus­try failed to pass in the reg­u­lar ses­sion’s chaotic clos­ing min­utes this week.

“I am heart­bro­ken, and I’m an­gry,” said Del. Ch­eryl Glenn, a Bal­ti­more Demo­crat who chairs the Leg­isla­tive Black Cau­cus.

Gov. Larry Ho­gan, a Repub­li­can, could call a spe­cial ses­sion of the Leg­is­la­ture. Mary­land law­mak­ers also could pe­ti­tion the gov­er­nor to call a spe­cial ses­sion, if a ma­jor­ity of mem­bers in the House and Se­nate agree to do so.
