Before we start lobbing too many rocks in the direction of Mexico City,
Americans need to take stock of our own corruption problems related to
the prohibition of marijuana and the War on Drugs.
The CIA, DEA, INS, FBI and the police departments of every major city in
this country, and most smaller ones, have already been corrupted by drug
war money. The degree of corruption, slowly emerging, shocks most
Americans who have forgotten all the lessons associated with
prohibition, corruption, and crime.

In light of all the excellent characteristics of this plant, it seems
heavy-handed and self-serving to continue the ban based on a prohibitionist
war waged against our people for more than 60 years.
The main reason that marijuana was made illegal was due to the excellent
material that could be made from hemp. A textile mogul with political ties
funded the "reefer madness" campaign and eliminated his competition.

I agree; the war on drugs is a dismal failure after nearly $1 trillion and
over 60 years of oppression. Legalization and harm reduction will relieve
our overcrowded prisons of nonviolent criminals, save billions on the war
and actually create revenue through taxes upon the drugs. Drug use among
teen-agers would drop due to regulation and restriction of sales to minors,
unlike the dealers today who sell to whoever has the money. Most
importantly, it will restore our rights of life, liberty, and the pursuit
of happiness, not to mention protection from illegal search and seizures.

Drug use and associated crime are escalating out of control as
international drug gangs grow rich at our expense. Drugs have their
dangers, but people are prepared to take the risks, as with the legal drugs
alcohol and tobacco. Would it not be far better to legalise all drugs
under strict regulation?
This would eliminate the criminal black market, deprive organised crime of
its greatest source of income and allow adults to decide for themselves
which risks they are prepared to take.

By allowing drugs to remain illegal and under the control old criminal
gangs we are placing them beyond the control of society and the problem

Life certainly does not always imitate art. We wish our daughter, Laura

Instead, she is facing a long and expensive appeal process, resulting from
her conviction for obstruction of justice while trying to do her civil
duty. Regardless of her political views, Laura never purposely withheld any

Laura was the lone hold-out juror in the trial of a 19 year-old girl
charged with possession of methamphetamine. Laura felt that there was not
enough evidence to convict. This infuriated the other juror. One anonymous
juror sent a note to the judge describing statements that my daughter made
in the jury deliberation room (so much for private deliberations). Based
on only this anonymous note, the presiding judge, Judge Kenneth Barnhill,
declared a mistrial.
Two months later, Laura is charged with contempt of court! Apparently the
judge and prosecutor were so enraged about losing a conviction, that they
decided to take revenge on the juror they held responsible. They found out
who the hold-out juror was and chose to investigate her background. With
sheer delight, I'm sure, they found that 12 years ago Laura was involved in
a drug charge herself. However, they ignored the fact that she received a

The maxim "truth is the first casualty of war" is particularly true in the

You correctly observe, ``Mexico's dismal record in controlling narcotics
trafficking.'' And point out that, ``70 percent of all illegal drugs
entering the United States comes through Mexico.'' You also say that, ``if
the United States, with all its power and riches, cannot control or even
diminish the demand for drugs within its own borders, it is absurd to
demand that much poorer nations save us from ourselves.'' Then amazingly,
you then fail to grasp the significance of your own observations and
suggest that the ``answer'' is to scrap the certification process because
it doesn't work! Pardon my exclamation point; it simply expresses the
amazement someone outside the paradigm of drug prohibition feels when
confronted by the absurdities of those still laboring within it. The
critical question is: when is The Chronicle and the rest of America going
to wake up to the fact that drug prohibition is a form of utopian insanity
that this country has, because of its wealth and power, been able to force
on the rest of the world. It's a policy which makes completely invalid
assumptions about reality and human nature and then tries to make them come
true, doing enormous damage to all of us in the process. Sadly, the real
``answer'' won't come until The Chronicle editors and enough other
Americans wake up to that simple truth.

Mary Smith from KWADS expressed concern about the protection of children
if drugs were regulated suggesting that under 18s would still have to
buy it on the street. But who would be selling it? It would no longer be
a lucrative industry. We dont have a problem with alcohol and cigarettes
being sold to children by unscrupulous pushers.
What would the regulation of drugs mean in practice? It would mean a huge
reduction in property crime, crime against the person and organised
crime. It would mean legislation to protect children. It would mean
making millions of pounds in tax revenue which could be spent on drug
education and research.

Same old story, 400 million on drug prevention didn't work so lets spend
600 million. I wish that my children could go to drug free schools, but
this isn't working. Drugs are in our society, always have been and always
will be, the problem is that they are currently controlled by drug dealers
who are not concerned with the health and safety of our children, but with
making money. If drugs are legal then they are regulated, same as alcohol,
same as morphine. These controlled substances are not big problems in our
schools, marijuana and crack are. In the words of Bill Clinton "Insanity
is doing the same old thing over and over again and expecting a different
result." Its time to get serious and look at what we have to do to protect
our children as well as society.
Blue Springs, MO
The current very limited law allows a court to review a doctor's
recommendation and, when the court finds it appropriate, find a defendant
not guilt of marijuana use by reason of medical necessity. Because doctors
who make such a recommendation could face federal removal of their right to
prescribe medicine no doctor is likely to make such a recommendation
lightly. Indeed, the law has never even been used.
So the law simply sends a message that in this state, like many other
states, doctors and their patients are not the enemy in the War on Drugs.
It says the we have common sense. Even children can figure this out.
If we repeal the law why shouldn't children believe we lack common sense
and compassion. Would it give us increased credibility when we say anything
else about drugs? Like the representatives in Virginia recently, our
representatives should just put this one on hold.

Cannabis hemp was our planet's largest agricultural crop from about 1000
B.C. to 1883 A.D. Products made from hemp include paper, fuel, building
materials, lighting oil, clothing, ropes, carpet backing, food from the
nutritious hemp seed, varnish and paints, and plastic. Hemp grows well in
most climates without chemicals. It would take 6 percent of U.S. land to
provide all of America's energy needs with hemp. Why fight wars for the
right to send money out of our country to buy expensive and polluting
fossil fuels, when we could pay our farmers to grow fuel that is less
expensive and less polluting?

Currently the federal government is studying the benefits of marijuana for
treatment of nausea, the wasting syndrome that results from HIV/AIDS, and
glaucoma, among other ailments. The commission has admitted that evidence
exists that marijuana is helpful in treating these diseases.
Why, then, doesn't our Legislature table this repeal until the studies are
complete, as Virginia's legislature has done? It seems to me that to do
anything else would be pure political grandstanding.
Prohibition guarantees drug cartels, guarantees billion-dollar
bureaucracies to fight a government-created "crime", guarantees gang
killings, guarantees parentless children, guarantees police corruption,
guarantees an excuse for racism by authorities, and guarantees a general
cynicism and disrespect for all laws and authority by arbitrarily making
someone a criminal for doing nothing more than making a personal decision.
No matter how many billions are spent and how many millions are jailed, the
war against drug users can never be won short of a totalitarian state. The
only answer is regulation and education. We ended prohibition once, we must
end it again.
If DARE the organization wants to survive it should try telling the truth

In your "cannabis crisis" story of 3-19-97, a mistake is made in
concentrating on violence. Alcohol stands virtually alone as the premier
violence producing drug. Those interested in pursuing prohibition should
concentrate on the positive economic features of prohibition. As an
American who has lived under prohibition, for all of his 53 years, I speak
from first hand experience.
Prohibition can work wonders in reducing the unemployment rate in New
Zealand. The construction of the prisons necessary to enforce prohibition,
will do wonders for the construction industry. The personnel necessary to
staff and administer new prisons, adds a new dimension to any local
economy. The hundreds of extra police, necessary for proper prohibition
enforcement, can be used to augment military forces in time of war. The
jobs of those incarcerated can of course be filled by those currently
seeking employment, and the added social costs of broken families, and the
drain on welfare resources, can be handled nicely by the necessary,
periodic, tax increases that a dedicated prohibitionist would never object

binge drinking of alcohol, at least once, within the past 14 days. Binge
drinking is defined as five or more drinks or beers in succession, at one

The opinion that whatever evaluation of safety and efficacy marijuana is
subjected to, it will have the added burden of proving it is the best agent
available would be regarded as facetious if made about any other class of
therapeutic agents. In the case of marijuana, for a scientist to allow that
such an outcome is even possible is regarded as dangerous heresy and its
utterance a mark of defiance.
This is the sad state of affairs American drug policy has brought us to.

A. M. Rosenthal advocates that drugs "must be fought by every legal
technique" (column, April 9). Of course, this is what has been done, over
and over again.
When the currently legal techniques don't work, we simply expand what is
"legal" for the government to do. Routine body searches (drug tests) and
civil forfeiture (confiscation without due process) are just the outrage of
And we didn't even have to change the Constitution; we just had to change
our minds about what abuses we would accept.
With enough support for the drug war, there is no limit to what the
government could do to "save" us from ourselves.
A. M. Rosenthal's analysis that we are winning the drug war (column, April
8) ignores a few points.
One is the Clinton Administration's drug war budget of $16 billion. Mr.
Rosenthal points out that in the early 1980's, many more people used drugs
than do now. Yet in 1980 the drug budget was only $1 billion.
Why does it cost so much more to deal with fewer users?
Gen. Barry R. McCaffrey, the White House drug czar, is the Administration's

A striking example of this disparity is that Kiwis are permitted to buy
codeine-containing medicines without a doctor's prescription, even
though codeine is a narcotic--chemically related to heroin and carrying
similar risks, including the possibility of addiction. These risks are
communicated to adult users, who are credited with sufficient good
judgement to use the drug safely. The fact that a few people purposely
abuse codeine (as by making 91homebake') is not considered sufficient
reason to keep this useful drug away from the rest of us.

It is just this type of reasoning that has caused us to be the world's
largest prison builder and trillions of dollars in debt. Let's not "waste"
$20,000 a year providing clean needles to these "hopheads." Let's wait until
they get AIDS so we can unload an average of $500,000 a person in public
assistance and medical aid.
Even the most hardened and self-serving among us should be able to see the
rationale in providing clean needles to drug users. We're not doing it to make
life pleasant for drug users. We're doing it because it's in our society's
best interest to do so.
Zero tolerance has put the sale and distribution of some drugs into the
hands of minors to be sold to minors.
How can our leaders continue to support a policy that endangers children? I
hope that they can sleep at night after spewing rhetoric about how they are
saving children when, in fact, they are advocating a policy that puts our
youth in jeopardy. In truth, politicians are only using this subject as a
