Marijuana use among U.S. preteens doubled in 1996, researchers reported at the kickoff of a new media blitz aimed at getting parents involved in the war against drugs. "Drugs can no longer be regarded as a teenage problem only," Ginna Marston of the Partnership for a Drug-Free America told a news conference. Citing the partnership's ninth annual study of U.S. drug use, Marston said marijuana use among pre-teenagers had increased from about 230,000 children in 1995 to 460,000 children in 1996.

Teenagers' drug use is leveling off amid growing evidence that America's youth, which once viewed drugs as almost a rite of passage, now views them as uncool, according to the annual survey by the New York-based Partnership for a Drug-Free America. The 12th survey of U.S. teenagers found that 40% of those questioned felt "really cool" teens did not use drugs--an increase of 5 percentage points from last year.

The Partnership for a Drug-Free America wholeheartedly supports the concept of developing a national advertising campaign targeting underage drinking. But your June 16 editorial misses the essence of our concerns regarding an amendment to the National Youth Anti-Drug Media Campaign. You can target illegal drugs with advertising. Backed by the proper research, you can do the same for underage drinking. But you cannot do both effectively with the current federal appropriation. That's the issue.

OPINION
September 27, 2003
Re "Anti-Drug Pitch Goes Wide," editorial, Sept. 22: The government tells you that marijuana is as bad as heroin, funds terrorists and, if you use it, you will go mad and kill people. Anyone who takes a single puff can tell you that those are lies. The real problem with marijuana is that it is illegal and therefore unregulated and untaxed. If the state would grow and sell marijuana to adults, who buy it anyway, it would make/save about $10 billion a year. If a third of this money was given to local police, a third to education and a third went into the general coffers, California would soon be out of debt.
