I greatly appreciate that Larry Carson mentioned two of my most important campaign issues in his Sept. 30 article ("Candidates face off for general election at forum"). However, the drug "spice" is not "likened to marijuana. " It is in fact synthetic marijuana equal to the real thing in terms of the effect on the mind — yet legal and readily available to children. Cases of respiratory problems have also been reported by users of this product. And it is believed that exposure to high dosages can cause unconsciousness, short-term memory loss, damage to the heart, liver, kidney, lungs and brain.

State health officials warned people Wednesday not to consume a spice popular in African cuisine because it contains high levels of lead.

If you composed a list of local brands that could be considered venerable, Old Bay would probably sit at the top. From popcorn to pizza - and the seasoning's most beloved partner, steamed crabs - Marylanders have found many uses for the McCormick & Co. spices-and-herbs blend over the past 75 years. But now, Old Bay is trying some new moves to bolster its visibility in and beyond Baltimore. This month, Old Bay entered the increasingly popular craft-beer market by collaborating with Frederick's Flying Dog Brewery on a seasonal beer.

In a way, the synthetic mind-altering product known as spice is the new thing, a legal, mind-altering substance that's easily accessible to people younger than the legal drinking age. In another way, it's nothing more than the latest in a line of such cheap, legal highs. The list actually is fairly and includes spray paint - especially gold spray paint - model glue, paint thinner, certain over-the-counter medications and an assortment of plant products such as morning glory seeds (yes, the flower)

A year after the U.S. Naval Academy expelled seven midshipmen for using synthetic marijuana on the zero-tolerance Annapolis campus, the "spice" investigation is over, and college officials say the drug problem is past. Sixteen midshipmen were expelled from the academy for use or possession of synthetic marijuana between December 2010 and August 2011, when the formal investigation ended. Only one midshipman has been investigated for spice since, said Cmdr. William Marks, academy spokesman.

The NFL released its 2011 preseason schedule yesterday, and the Ravens are looking at another yawn-inducing four-game slate. The Ravens play familiar preseason foes in the Eagles and the Redskins, and have games against the Falcons and the Chiefs. The schedule is seemingly cookie-cutter , but I'm not sure the league can do much to make the preseason exciting outside of scheduling division games (you know you would tune in for an exhibition game against the Steelers). I'm sure you have other ideas, so let's hear them.

The Baltimore County Council voted unanimously Monday to ban a potpourri-like product that mimics marijuana highs. Anyone attempting to sell, distribute, possess, buy or use K2, also known as spice, and other products that mimic marijuana will face a $500 fine, 60 days in jail or both. More than a dozen states have enacted similar bans or have pending legislation. "I think the message is that we're not going to tolerate these activities taking place in Baltimore County neighborhoods," said Councilman Kevin Kamenetz, who introduced the legislation.

Del. Jon S. Cardin, the front-runner to become Maryland's next attorney general, calls himself an active legislator who believes "nothing is more sacred to democracy than the right to vote. " But when it came time to cast votes in the House Ways and Means Committee in Annapolis this year, the Baltimore County Democrat repeatedly failed to show up. General Assembly records reviewed by The Baltimore Sun show that during the 90-day legislative session, Cardin missed about 120 out of 164 committee votes - nearly 75 percent.

McCormick & Co. Inc. is dear to every Marylander's heart ("McCormick is exploring relocation of headquarters," March 27). Few can live away from the state without picking up a classic can of Old Bay, as much for a feeling of home as for its delicious flavors. I read with fear, and then joy, the news that the spice company was considering relocating its corporate headquarters. Fear that they may move away, even if just to Pennsylvania, joy at the prospect that they could relocate from their drab suburban office park to the heart of downtown Baltimore.

It isn't often that I find myself agreeing with columnist Dan Rodricks , but his idea of more really local TV and less redundant reporting is one I've had myself ("Let's put more 'local' in local TV," March 11). Why not add even more topics to his list? How about a 30-minute spotlight on local historical sites, of which our area has literally hundreds. Or a scenic cruise segment, for which, again, there are many candidates in our region? You could ask for viewers' home video input.

They searched at area grocery stores and Walmart and found just one jar of the blend they use on fish, one of the few foods their daughter, Lara, will eat.

The performing arts scene is revved up for another holiday season. In addition to the usual flurry of such perennial favorites as Handel's "Messiah" and Tchaikovsky's "The Nutcracker," this year's lineup gains fresh spice from several new-to-Baltimore productions, including a play about the last Christmas of the Civil War and stage adaptations of popular holiday movies. Here's a look at some of these novel attractions. 'A Civil War Christmas' In 1997, just before the premiere of "How I Learned to Drive," the powerful play about child abuse that would earn her a Pulitzer Prize, Paula Vogel got the inspiration for a very different work.
