New way wanted

Letters, Mid Essex Evening Gazette

Wednesday 25 Oct 2000

On October 18th, the Gazette reported "Police officers from around the world are coming to Essex... as part of Drug Abuse Resistance Education scheme."

I find it incredible that the DARE scheme will be presented after it has been widely acknowledged as a costly failure in the United States. (New York Times, 27 Sep,)

When will the authorities in this country realise that we are not Americans, we do not want to be treated as Americans, and we certainly do not want to import failed American policies on drugs or anything else?

Let's face it: prohibition of alcohol in the USA failed and had to be withdrawn, and prohibition of other drugs both here and in the States has failed.

What we need is a new approach!
