In your article "Drugs Chief Resigns With Attack On Blair" (31
August), David Macauley blames the government for his resignation. He
is as out of touch with reality on this, as he is in his attempts at
eliminating drug abuse. Scotland Against Drugs had its funding cut,
and its role changed, because it was ineffectual, clinging to
unrealistic beliefs that people will stop taking drugs when told:
"Just say no".
