Re: "Agonizing tale," Aug. 28 What a load of crap. Children only become
involved in selling drugs if the drugs in question are banned. When was the
last time you saw a kid hawking cigarettes or booze on the street? Drug
prohibition is a cynical Hitler-like program implemented by our government
to distract attention away from failures on other areas and to grant a
measure of vicarious pleasure to the white and the non-poor by persecuting
the non-white and the poor.
