    The High Life: The days of a summer weed drought are no more

    The cop asked if he could search my car.

    The Baltimore area’s music scene is, for all its underground legends and critical darlings, light on unit-shifting Billboard chart fixtures. But local music’s biggest sales triumph in recent memory went by with little notice: Baltimore County-based pop-punk band All Time Low’s sixth album “Future...
