medical marijuana revived in Maryland

Maryland’s 2014 legislative session expanded the state’s medical marijuana program and decriminalized small amounts of the drug (though tacked on steeply escalating civil fines). But that doesn’t mean anything has been simplified. As the Baltimore Sun reports, both measures have left much unclear for law enforcement and doctors, not to mention the many patients waiting for access to their medicine.

Regarding medical marijuana:

+ The chairman of Maryland’s Medical Marijuana Commission expects it to take “until the third quarter of 2015″ before patients actually have access to the drug. Read More →

Check Out This Fancy Residential Skyscraper Proposed for the Inner Harbor

0 Written by: | Friday, Apr 11, 2014 9:01am

Baltimore’s skyline may get a little bit of a tweak in the near future. 414 Light Street, across from the Inner Harbor, was formerly a McCormick & Co. manufacturing plant and lately just a parking lot. But if Questar Properties moves forward with its development plans, it will become a luxury residential tower unlike Baltimore has yet seen.

The newly unveiled design for the building received preliminary approval from Baltimore’s Urban Design and Architecture Review Panel. It will be 43-stories, and at 485 feet, the city’s fourth-tallest building. According to Baltimore Business Journal, the architecture firm responsible for the design intends the tower’s “sail-like” top and blue glass walls to evoke the Inner Harbor’s “maritime history.” Read More →

Johns Hopkins Hospital’s service, maintenance, and technical employees went on strike at 6 a.m. and said they will picket around the clock until 6 p.m. Friday to push for hourly wages of at least $14 by the end of a four-year contract and $15 in the first year of a contract for a worker with 15 years of experience.

Union spokesperson Jim McNeill said the workers strike was authorized after the hospital’s “last, best, final” offer of $12.25 or less by the end of a four-year contract was rejected for being “so weak.” The union claims that “40 percent of Hopkins workers with at least 15 years of service make less than $14.92 an hour.” In other words, they qualify for food stamps.

Opening of the State of Maryland legislature Annapolis, Md

Uh oh. It looks like Maryland’s 2014 legislative session ended without an agreement between the House and Senate on a tax credit to keep the House of Cards production in Maryland. When push came to shove, negotiations between the two chambers stalled out on the issue of invoking eminent domain to seize the property of film and television productions that leave the state. The House refuse to remove the Frank Underwood-worthy language, while the Senate refused to accept it. Read More →
