RE: LOSING the war on drugs, Aug. 30.

Jeremy Loome's description of a
demoralized narcotics detective who believed the war on drugs would succeed
if more money was put into the fight, sounded like a sad joke. Stated
another way, the joke goes like this: Question: How many drug warriors does
it take to change a light bulb? Answer: Nobody's quite sure, but they are
going to need a lot more money and complete allegiance from the public to
do the job right.
