Arkansas Gov. Bill Clinton acknowledged Sunday that he had experimented with marijuana while a 22-year-old student in England in the late 1960s, an admission that could raise doubts about his past candor in answering questions about his personal conduct. For five years, the 45-year-old Clinton has answered questions about whether he had ever used drugs by saying he had never broken a U.S. law. During a televised debate here with Democratic presidential rival Edmund G. (Jerry) Brown Jr.

Scott Gottlieb (Opinion, Sept. 27) suggests that making marijuana available medically will result in U.S. physicians regularly abusing marijuana, causing the "stoned age" of medicine. That certainly has never happened with physicians prescribing morphine and the other opiates, cocaine and even methamphetamine. Gottlieb cites the British experience, where medical use of marijuana is encouraged, and he alleges that "46% of medical students in England have tried marijuana at least once, while 10% claimed to smoke one joint or more per week."

Adults can learn about apartheid and the arms race, and children will be invited to write a rap song about peace at a conference this week at Cal State Northridge. The Peace Expo--scheduled today through Saturday--will feature non-competitive games, a dance, films about the homeless and nuclear weapons, and discourses on subjects from wife beating to Soviet leader Mikhail Gorbachev. Participants will be allowed to camp on the Sierra Quad lawn on campus during the event. The object of the conference is to demonstrate how a more peaceful world can be built, said Carol S. Kelly, a child development professor at the university and director of the International Institute for Violence Prevention, which organized the event.
