Lake Los Angeles, a high-desert community at the northeast edge of Los Angeles County, has no lake, one traffic signal and two markets. And at least 33 illegal meth labs have been shut down in the almost three years since a task force of sheriff's deputies and state narcotics agents started targeting the area. With about 14,000 residents in less than 150 square miles, Lake Los Angeles represents about 3% of the Antelope Valley in area and population.

A two-year Tehama County methamphetamine investigation has taken out a major arm of a Mexican drug ring with connections throughout California, state Bureau of Narcotic Enforcement officials said. Jack Nehr, the bureau's special agent in charge, said the drug ring was a Mexican national organization that moved to the northern part of the state from Southern California. In such drug rings, instructions and profits flow in and out of Mexico, he said.

The annual marijuana eradication campaign hit a new record this summer, uprooting 4.4 million plants, a 52% increase over last summer, state and federal officials plan to announce today. "The number of marijuana plants eradicated has increased due to the number of plants being cultivated and law enforcement's ability to detect and access the remote areas where the plants are grown," said Michelle Gregory of the California Bureau of Narcotic Enforcement. The program has increased its seizures since 1996, when voters approved the use of medical marijuana.

In Tijuana, schoolchildren get lessons on how to duck during gangland shootouts. Ciudad Juarez cops patrol with military escorts, and the morgue there is spilling over with gunshot victims. But here in Mexicali, people fear the desert sun more than drug hit men. The city of 700,000 has a homicide rate comparable to that of Wichita, Kan., and one of the biggest police deployments is Operation Beat the Heat, in which officers haul blocks of ice to shantytown residents. There hasn't been a bank robbery in Mexicali in 18 months, or a reported kidnapping in a year.

Re "Reckless Rx in the desert?" July 29 How does a physician subscribing to "first do no harm" find himself or herself prescribing either drugs that are inherently harmful or drugs at hazardous levels? The answer is not complex. "Follow the money" is all one needs to do. Tom Pula Sunland -- I am not surprised at addicted doctors, greedy pharmacists or enabling administrators.
