Reefer madness in Arundel

State lawmakers have proposed a constitutional amendment that would let voters decide in 2018 whether to tax and regulate marijuana in the same manner as alcohol. (Baltimore Sun video)

I read the Feb. 12 Baltimore Sun report "D.C. man arrested after chase ends at casino" about a lengthy car chase involving multiple law enforcement agencies. It said that "six people suffered minor injuries, apparently as they tried to flee the [Maryland Live] casino."

I was looking for the suspected offense, expecting something akin to a modern day Jesse James outlaw. The very last line of the report finally tells us: the suspect allegedly had possession of marijuana.

I would expect that those police agencies conducting the chase will appropriately compensate the six injured bystanders, as well as reimburse the casino for lost revenue due to the disruption.

To the Maryland Legislature currently in session: End this senseless war on drugs. Now. It is time to stop the madness.
