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.

I strongly disagree with Dan Rodricks ' column on pit bulls ("Pit bulls: Own at your risk," May 1). I am a dog lover and I know all dogs are not dangerous. Dog owners have to know how to train their dogs appropriately. The dog is a follower; it follows its owner and what he/she tells the dog what to do. Dogs are innocent, people are guilty! I'll be so glad and appreciate if Mr. Rodricks changes his mind. Kayla Waters, Lannon, Wis.

For some thoroughbreds at Pimlico Race Course on Saturday, it had been mere months since their last race. Now, as the ex-racehorses trotted onto the track, they were asked by riders not to run like the wind, but do something entirely different - circle barrels, leap hurdles or prance precisely in dressage, an Olympic equestrian sport. The horses at the second annual Thoroughbred Makeover: A Marketplace & National Symposium resisted the urge to take off when they heard the boom of an announcer's voice.

They are as well-versed in 3-D printing, weaving and the anthropology of fashion as they are in classic looks from Chanel and Dior. Students in the Maryland Institute College of Art s fibers program approach fashion from an unusual perspective. Although the college does not offer a traditional fashion design curriculum, graduates are creating inventive garments informed by education rooted in a sensual - and intellectual - understanding of textiles. "Fashion is a cultural force that relates to how we communicate ideas, values, fears and aspirations, our sense of belonging, and our ideas around gender and class," said fibers department chair Valeska Populoh.

The circle of political power brokers and deep-pocketed investors hatched their plan more than three years ago, seeing promise in a project deemed wildly unrealistic by some and stubbornly unattainable by others. With billions in backing from the Japanese government, the Northeast Maglev group envisions building a futuristic magnetic levitation or "maglev" train capable of transporting Baltimore homeowners to Washington jobs in 15 minutes, at speeds above 300 mph. Plenty in Maryland think it will never happen or shouldn't, given the price tag in excess of $10 billion.

When we talk about music, we tend to place our experiences into one of two categories: making the music and listening to it. Delineating the two seems practical and obvious. In reality, though, there are a lot of opportunities for overlap, and it doesn't matter how you get into the music as long as you connect with it. Here are some approaches to try. Immerse I love performing. The sounds coming at me are dynamic, colorful and multi-layered. The energy from the musicians around me and from the audience is a swirl of excitement.
