As the Aunt of a young man who rcently overdosed on heroin, I could
not agree more with your story asserting that the Bush
administration's focus on marijuana is horribley misguidd [RS 980]. 
Round up a hundrend junkies and ask, "What was the point of no
return?" I'm confident that none will say it was pot.  Going after
marijuana to lessen the availability of hard drugs is like giving out
parking tickets when the guy next to you is selling crack -
technically your're doing your job, but in reality your're taking the
easy way out.
