I would like to share my organization's thoughts with regard to recent discussions about medical marijuana in Maryland and the question of whether physicians should receive additional training ( "Medical pot rules raise concern," July 26). As a statewide pharmacists' program with a mission to educate our field about drug and alcohol abuse, we are aware of the harmful effects substance use has especially when illicit drug and prescription drugs interact. Many clinicians outside of the pharmacy community lack the background necessary to discern the dangers recreational use of drugs can have on various health conditions due to prescription drug interplay.

Nearly three months after the Maryland health exchange decided to ditch its online marketplace for a new website, the exchange board has hired a small Greenbelt firm to check its work. The board voted Tuesday to award Angarai International Inc., a professional management consulting firm, a one-year contract for $3.55 million to audit technology development and management on the site.

What makes the tea party movement so effective at mobilizing voters and winning elections is the same thing that may limit its effectiveness in the future: its decentralized nature. The tea party movement is politics guerrilla-style. The first thing a non-tea partier must know is that there is no single tea party; there are multiple tea parties that maintain a loose connection with one another through informal contacts or more formalized caucuses. Most tea party groups are hyper-local and get by with the efforts of volunteers and a small group of donors.

Not only is Patsy Cline's 1962 hit "Crazy" among the choices on the little jukeboxes perched on the wall at the Bel-Loc Diner's booths, the country singer with the smooth, sultry voice once ate there.

In the wake of Maryland's decision last year to make use of medical marijuana legally defensible, the General Assembly is considering what kind of system would facilitate getting the herb to those who, under a doctor's care, need it. After all, cancer patients, glaucoma sufferers and others who find relief in medical marijuana should not have to resort to a rendezvous with a street-corner dealer - a transaction that, of course, is still illegal....

When NovaSom Inc. was looking to produce its sleep apnea diagnostic kits, the Glen Burnie-based company didn't look to factories in Asia or Mexico. Instead, it found a manufacturer right off the Beltway in Woodlawn. NovaSom chose Zentech Manufacturing Inc. for two key reasons: Executives here could oversee quality control, and the kits could be shipped to domestic customers in just days, not weeks or months. After years of American companies shipping jobs and contracts overseas, some are choosing local manufacturers or even "re-shoring" — bringing those jobs and work back to the United States.

Car buyers who for decades have bought Toyotas for quality and reliability might never think of the brand in quite the same way. The automaker made the unprecedented decision this week to halt sales and production of some of its top-selling models after finding possible accelerator pedal defects and after announcing a recall for 2.3 million vehicles last week. It also expanded a separate recall related to floor mats late Wednesday. Those actions are expected to rattle consumer confidence in the short term and possibly longer, auto analysts said.
