To the Editor:

Dr. Eugene Tinelli and Nicholas Eyle are two brave men who could help
us reduce alcohol and drug use.

Their desire to sit on the Syracuse-Onondaga Drug and Alcohol Abuse
Commission stems from a commitment to less drug use and
safer-should-it-occur solutions, not bury-your-head-in-the-sand and
launch-nuclear-missile philosophies of many other commission members.

An accurate analogy to the current drug war is to that of medieval
medicine, where the (often-fatal) prescription was usually more
leeches, regardless of the underlying condition.

It is time, to step out of the dark ages. Are people more likely to
consume cocaine in a baggiefrom a friend or from a warning-covered
container? Which is safer?

Support these men for a spot on the commission.
