Kojo speaks with Maryland's Attorney General Brian Frosh about his office's expanded powers granted in the most recent General Assembly session. We also discuss the latest plan to make Metro solvent with Metro Board member and Arlington County Board member Christian Dorsey.
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. How might this affect Maryland, where medical marijuana is still banned, but those who use it and are arrested, are eligible for a reduced sentence (no jail time and just $100 fine). We ask a current and former lawmaker to predict what might happen when the Maryland Legislature reconvenes in January.
