Maryland will become the 19th state to approve a medical marijuana program, but it's unclear when one will be up and running.

Gov. Martin O'Malley's spokeswoman, Raquel Guillory, confirmed Wednesday that the governor will sign the measure. That will happen at a bill-signing ceremony Thursday, along with dozens of other measures, including a repeal of the death penalty.
