ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP) — Two bills that would decriminalize marijuana will get their first hearing Tuesday in a Senate committee.

A bill filed by Sen. Robert Zirkin would make it a civil offense to possess less than 10 grams worth of marijuana, punishable by a $100 fine but no longer attached to any criminal charge. The other bill, filed by Sen. Jamie Raskin, would make marijuana possession legal for people 21 or older.
