I would like to thank Mr. John Zwiebel for responding to my thing on
drugs and adding to my dissertation. You are right, drug problems have
a long history dating back many centuries. However, my article
addresses a concern for our (USA) existing problems.

History of anything is fascinating since it is the data-base of human
experiences and we can learn a lot from it. As George Santayana said:
"Those who can't remember the past are condemned to repeat it."
I would change that to read: "We are condemned to repeat the past if
we lack the knowledge to understand it."  Ralph Tamm, 31 May 1999.

I would like mention there are many positives uses of hallucinogenic
drugs, which include many physical and psychogenic purposes. As with
any product, a blanket condemnation, to my knowledge, can never be
made. Who knows what the future might bring?
