A 17-year-old Freeland boy told police the day after a July 9 party in Parkton that another teen had assaulted him with a knife, a police report states. A 17-year-old Parkton teen was charged as an adult with first- and second-degree assault and using a dangerous weapon with intent to injure. He has since been released on $50,000 bail. According to a police report, the two 17-year-olds were at a party in a house in the 1700 block of Parsonage Road at about 10:30 p.m. when the Parkton teen allegedly held a large survival-type knife to the Freeland teen's throat and threatened to cut him. Police said a possible motive for the attack was the Parkton teen's' belief that his ex-girlfriend and the Freeland teen had a relationship.

The lack of coherent rules for access to medical marijuana in Maryland is beyond absurd ( "Pot as medicine," Aug. 27). Medical marijuana has already been successfully implemented in many states across the country. Is Maryland so different that we can't adopt the same policies in use by other states? While there have been abuses of the system, they are relatively rare and non-threatening. Extending the logic applied by the Maryland commission on medical marijuana, we should ban swimming pools - responsible for hundreds of injuries and deaths every year - reduce the highway speed limit to 25 mph and make countless other changes to state law. Obviously, that's not the answer.

It was ironic for Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid to use the term "Native Americans" recently when referring to descendants of the indigenous peoples who inhabited this continent before Europeans arrived ( "Redskins name controversy heats up with federal cancellation of trademark," June 18). Those native peoples would never call themselves "Americans. " The name "Americus" (Latin for America) was heavily inked onto early maps of the "New World" in large part as a promotional advertisement for a European adventurer and explorer named Amerigo Vespucci.
