ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP)- The Maryland House of Delegates has passed a measure to allow medical marijuana in the state.

The House voted 108-28 for the bill on Monday. The measure now goes to the Senate.

The measure would create a commission to oversee a medical marijuana program at academic medical research centers that decide to participate.

Supporters have been backing the measure for years, but it received an extra boost this year with the support of the state's health secretary.

It's estimated that patients could not participate in a medical marijuana program in the state until at least fiscal year 2016.

A participating medical center would be required to specify the medical conditions it would treat and the criteria by which patients would be allowed to participate.

    New Waterfront Hotel Breaks Ground in O.C., Part 2

    The location of a new waterfront hotel that recently broke ground in Ocean City is raising some eyebrows with neighbors in the downtown area.

    The Cambria Hotel is being built in the vacant lot that sits just north of the Route 50 drawbridge, meaning it will be one of the first things drivers see headed into town.

    Brian Plimack, who lives just behind the development, said the hotel is too much of a drastic change to the town's skyline.
