Editor -- Thanks for your very thoughtful articles (Sunday, Sept. 17)
on self-medication in our drug-laden society. They give me added
information and perspective. I too wonder why our society squanders
millions of dollars imprisoning some drug users while school budgets
go begging, children live in poverty and health care goes down the
tubes. Are we squandering our nations future to punish personal behavior?
