MD County Council Introduces Alternative Medical Marijuana Bill

MARYLAND:Gail Rand, part of a parent advocacy group in favor of medical marijuana to help treat seizures, began Anne Arundel’s County Council meeting Monday night in Annapolis with testimony about her young son Logan.

Logan has had about 14,000 seizures over his short lifetime. The condition leaves him unable to walk. Rand was testifying in favor of making medical marijuana available to local residents — something County Executive Steve Schuh wants to change.

Schuh proposed a bill before the County Council that would prevent growing, processing and dispensing medical marijuana here but not prohibit possession — so long as it was from another county.
