Dope a fair trade?

The Editor,

It is interesting to read of the concern over the export of marijuana from Cambodia

while the import of those legal drugs of abuse, nicotine and alcohol, is continuing.

The numbers of Khmer children to be seen smoking brand name cigarettes must be extremely

gratifying to representatives of those countries profiting from their sale. Surely

it is but a fair trade agreement: the future loss of health of this generation of

Cambodian youth and the putative health damage to marijuana-smoking Western adolescents.

- Janet Cornwall, Phnom Penh.
