Earlier this month, US Attorney General Eric Holder directed his staff NOT to pursue cases against people legitimately using or growing medical marijuana in states where such behavior is legal.

We ask a current and former lawmaker to predict what might happen when the Maryland Legislature reconvenes in January.
