I can only add one element to Bill Richardson's excellent analysis of
the meth issue ("What about the other drugs?" Opinion 2, April 18);
namely, that if adults had access to the same amphetamines we give our
Air Force and Navy pilots, the problems associated with meth would be
dramatically reduced. That our pilots are given amphetamines, allowed
to operate heavy machinery (jets) and then make life-and-death
decisions to drop bombs under the influence makes it ironic to absurd
that an adult waitress can not be allowed the same pill to pour my
coffee while she works a 12-hour shift.
