If Michael Braun and Oakland County Deputy Prosecutor James Halushka ("Drug
war being won") really believe what they wrote in their Aug. 30 letters to
the editor, then I think they are the ones who need a drug test. 

I grew up in the '70s and have seen so much drug use in my life that I know
this whole drug war is a joke. I have known doctors, lawyers, politicians
and respected business owners who used drugs. I have discussed drug use with
my 14-year-old son, who tells me that most of the kids in the community are
using marijuana. He says pot is easier to get than cigarettes and beer. 

This war has been going on for at least 40 years now and we are no closer to
ending drug use then when we started.
