In response to the op-ed column by Judges Bryan Levy and Brian Mackenzie 
("Beware lenient drug plan: Proposal would create addicts, not treat 
them"): Critique of a plan is easy to do, and I won't argue with their 
analysis. What I would rather do is get their thinking on how to better 
address the ever-growing and more insidious invasion of our society by 
illegal drugs. Our anti-drug program involving billions of taxpayer dollars 
has become a dismal failure, and our society's effort is the object of 
worldwide ridicule.

Maybe we would be better served if the judges would generate some better 
ideas than the "California Richies." Wouldn't that be interesting?
