  • Reforming Maryland’s Dysfunctional Beer Industry

    After witnessing the damaging effects of House Bill 1283’s passage in the 2017 legislative session, I convened a 40-member task force that held public, live-streamed meetings across our state. The goal of our “Reform on Tap” effort is simple: to remove statutory and regulatory impediments that have stood in the way of the craft beer industry’s limitless potential.
    To this day, I have not found a single craft brewer who has found this legislation beneficial. Instead, it codified arbitrary limits on the production, sale and distribution of Maryland-made beer within our state’s borders.
    In fact, the bill — which became law without Governor Hogan’s...

  • Five Ways To Stop Dry Mouth

    Dry mouth, also known as xerostomia, is not a disease. This medical disorder is simply the decrease in flow of saliva in the mouth. Causes of xerostomia include radiation during cancer therapy; diseases such as Sjogren’s syndrome, scleroderma, lupus and diabetes; and the No. 1 cause: medications. Without saliva to help fight oral bacteria, there can be extensive tooth decay. You need to maximize salivary flow, and keep your mouth wet to increase comfort and prevent tooth decay.
    Here are the five most important ways to prevent and treat xerostomia:
    ·         Chew sugar-free gum and candies to stimulate saliva, but no sugar products...
