ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP) — Maryland's House speaker says a lawmaker who chaired the Baltimore City delegation has resigned.

Delegate Cheryl Glenn was first elected in 2006. House Speaker Adrienne Jones says she received Glenn's letter of resignation Wednesday night.

Glenn, a 68-year-old Democrat, also is a former chair of the Legislative Black Caucus of Maryland.

Glenn was a leading advocate for legalizing medical marijuana. Maryland's medical cannabis commission is named after her late mother, Natalie M. LaPrade.
