The Maryland Department of Natural Resources recently amended its alcohol policy to permit the use of alcohol at state forest campsites. The change went into effect in May. At the same time, the policy prohibiting alcohol in Maryland's state parks, including at family campgrounds, remains in place, the DNR said in an e-mailed release. Under the previous policy, alcohol was prohibited in state parks and state forests. "We were going to make it prohibited at state forests, but because they are so remote and so far away from each other, we didn't have the same number of incidents occurring there as we did at the state parks," said Josh Davidsburg, senior communications manager for the Maryland Department of Natural Resources.

Reagan certainly shared Carter’s vision on deregulation, embracing with bravado policies that Carter launched with grim solemnity.

Bracts are typically red, pink or cream and are often mistaken as part of the flower. However, actual poinsettia flowers are small and yellowish green; they are located within the bract clusters.
