I would sincerely like to thank Jeff Nielson and Greg Bolt for their
enlightning articles in last Sunday's edition concering teen drug use here
in Central Oregon. They showed us unequivocally what failures prohibition
and the war on drugs truly are.

It also showed us what a failure the expensive and unsuccessful DARE
program has been considering most of the kids in Central Oregon have
participated in these classes. Can you spell a-c-c-o-u-n-t-a-b-i-l-i-t-y ?

The DARE program needs to be scrapped for the piece of garbage that it is
and the sooner the better.
