With rational thought and fact, Mr. Linn has well expressed my thoughts about the critical problem of drug use in the U.S. where "... both the taxpayers and addicts lose." This course will continue unless drastic changes are made. Mr. Linn has posed excellent alternatives. Ellen Hackman Woodstock - --- MAP posted-by: Richard R Smith Jr.
