Maryland Senate President Thomas V. Mike Miller wouldn't mind a toke right about now.
The leader in the Senate said Thursday that he supports medical marijuana for cancer patients and spoke of the pain his mother suffered as she battled the disease.
But there's also this nerve pain in his tooth.
"I've got a fractured nerve in my tooth right now," Miller said. "I wouldn't mind a toke myself."
If Miller is holding, he might want to save some because that pain could shift about 3 feet lower in a few days.
