    Sadly, per the Baltimore Sun, had this man been arrested in Baltimore, the State’s Attorney there has issued a Declaration of No Longer Prosecuting Marijuana Crimes-regardless of the Amount! She’s even dismissed cases brought to her with more Pot than this! The Law is the LAW & per MD law it’s still illegal BUT there shouldn’t be a Dual Standard of Prosecution within a State & harsher penalties in 1 County but Nothing in another…just saying!
