So, Martin Sheen argues passionately against Prop. 36, because his son 
nearly died of a drug overdose (July 25). Yet his son got exactly the 
medical detox and treatment program that Prop. 36 advocates and did no jail 
time. Does Sheen think that a few years in prison would have helped Charlie 
Sheen? Or is there one law for poor black kids and another for the children 
of the rich and famous?

Such blatant hypocrisy.
