Proposed ban on grain alcohol in Maryland is a bad idea

To the Editor:

— As a former resident of Maryland, I have noticed it has been mentioned in the news lately there is a bill to ban grain alcohol inside the state of Maryland because some college students got drunk too many times.

I'm very shocked to see the state of Maryland that resisted alcohol prohibition under the great Gov. Albert Ritchie in the 1920s wants to ban $1 cheap alcohol bottles for everyone over the age of 21.

This is just insane on the Maryland lawmakers’ part, and I wish it never becomes law.
