Running a medical marijuana operation could cost each grower more than $125,000 a year in fees, a sum so steep some officials believe it may shut out small businesses. Maryland's medical marijuana commission is tentatively proposing that fee for each of the 15 potential growers envisioned for the state's new program. The panel also is recommending a $40,000-a-year charge for dispensaries, according to a draft plan expected to be released for public comment Wednesday. Those license fees - atop as much as $6,000 in application fees - would finance the state's nascent medical marijuana program.

WASHINGTON - Paul Boone says he never intended to start smoking marijuana. But last summer, when the cancer that was attacking his liver made him so nauseated that he lost 40 pounds, he became desperate. So the 35-year-old computer consultant searched the Internet for a local head shop. He drove to Fells Point, bought two pipes and called a friend who had offered to find marijuana for him. In September, when he lighted up for the first time, the relief was almost instant, he says. "I couldn't believe how fast it stopped my nausea," says the Harford County resident, who has since regained 20 pounds despite six rounds of chemotherapy.
