Baseball Commissioner Peter Ueberroth has yet to announce his promised proposal for freeing baseball of drugs, but he has announced a plan for society.
Ueberroth outlined his proposals for eliminating what he called the "engine of crime in this country" during a speech Monday night at Yale University.
Ueberroth called for cooperation on the part of government and of the public and private sectors in a five-part plan of education and enforcement that would entail:
--"Good, aggressive diplomacy in the countries that grow the stuff."
--Better control on the United States' borders to prevent illegal drugs from entering the country.
--Legislation that would allow for better use of existing resources, particularly the military, to stop drug smuggling.
--A reassessment of the enforcement of drug laws in the country by the police and the courts.
--Better education and involvement by private companies, schools and families. "If businesses can spend millions and millions and millions of dollars on advertising shampoo and beer, they can spend a little on educating about drugs," Ueberroth said.
