The Baltimore Sun’s Timothy B. Wheeler reports from Annapolis that advocates are going to hit the legalization question again this term. Baltimore Delegate Curt Anderson is behind the effort, and he brought in politicians from Seattle and Colorado to talk to the point on Friday. The advocates are also armed with poll numbers that say 53 percent of Marylanders favor legalization.

State Senate President Thomas V. Mike Miller isn’t so high on the idea, however, telling Wheeler that medical marijuana is as far as he’s willing to go for now.
