To the editor: (Concerning the Sept. 7 advertisement headlined "Truth,
the Anti-Drug," which was sponsored by the Office of National Drug
Control Policy/Partnership for a Drug-Free America):

There is considerable irony in the choice of "the geocentric system"
as an example of how "truths change" from time to time.

Galileo died while under a sentence of house arrest due to the
enforcement of "the geocentric system." Today, modern inquisitors of
the drug war backed by the ONDCP/PDFA are busy imprisoning (for life)
those who would dare challenge their current version of the "truth"
about marijuana.
