Vehicular homicide underscores drug legalization's dangers [Letter]

December 17, 2013

Red Maryland's Gregory Kline wrote a very good commentary regarding the pot legalization movement ("The folly of marijuana legalization," Dec. 13).

It's too bad that it didn't appear on the front page alongside the story about Johnny Johnson, 44, who admitted he was high on drugs when he struck and killed a man in front of City Hall ("Man pleads guilty in City Hall car crash that killed worker".

The innocent life of Matthew Hersl was taken when Mr. Johnson sped through downtown Baltimore. What a tragedy.
