The Anne Arundel County executive wants to prohibit medical marijuana in his county in the face of a state law that would allow it. We hear from Delegate Dan Morhaim, a doctor and legislator who pushed for the legalization of medical marijuana. And, a prominent Baltimore preacher says he’s running for the Congressional seat held by Elijah Cummings. But will Rev. Jamal Bryant challenge Cummings if he runs for re-election? WYPR Senior News Analyst C. Fraser Smith helps us sort that story out. Plus, we have our weekly business report from the Baltimore Business Journal, film reviews from critic Chris Reed, and librarian Paula Gallagher tells us about a unique book that takes readers behind-the-scenes of popular NPR shows like “Planet Money” and “RadioLab.”
