To the editor: Great article ("Vets Against the [Drug] War," Sept. 28, 
2005). I am surprised that you left William F. Buckley, Mr. Conservative 
himself, off of the list of folks in favor of drug legalization. His stand, 
after a while, changed my attitude about drug use and users in general. His 
solution: pure drugs at the end of each grocery store check-out counter, 
free, take what you need, provided by government, not sold, taxed, or 
licensed, etc., not hidden behind the register or in the pharmacy. 
Distribution, especially a concern for children, would take care of itself 
- -- as it now does.
