The marriage proposal in August from his longtime partner was a surprise for Harford County resident Stephen Formwalt. Tuesday's affirmation of the law giving gay Marylanders the right to marry was just the icing on the wedding cake.
Maryland Gov. Martin O'Malley is expected to sign a bill Wednesday relaxing the penalty facing people caught with a small amount of marijuana, a law that supporters say will help streamline prosecution of misdemeanor possession cases.
Mr. Raskin, Montgomery Democrat, said the state's current marijuana-possession laws are needlessly complicated.
"We're adjusting the law to mirror actual practices," Mr. Raskin said. "Anything that we can do to bring more reason and balance into our drug laws will reduce costs in the criminal justice system and prisons and will benefit everybody."
