Juinc7 930 VSVI City 910 pm Sun 1U03 am Tuei pm Thun Sat Shall it be treatment or punishment U S SUPREME COURT on June 25 of this year handed down a decision hold ing a California law on punish ment of narcotic addicts to be unconstitutional Under1 the Cali fornia law addiction to nar cotics had been held to be a crime punishable by jail and prison terms rThe high courts reasoning was that the law imposed a cruel and unusual punish ment for what it held to be essentially an illness This decision did two things First it focused attention on the fact that our problem of narcotics is not one of easy so lution Second it crystalized the growing realization that a change is needed in our penal system for handling narcotics addicts Up to now there has existed a tugofwar between persons who regard narcotics addiction as an illness and those who stress the criminal approach and want the harsh mandatory penalties continued Support is growing for pro cedures to make a sharper dis tinction between the hardened profiteer in illicit drug sales and the drug user The former is despicable and should have se verest punishment The addict in contrast invites sympathy and should be helped in break ing a vicioushabit Sometimes however the same person is both user and seller In the middle west narcotics addiction is not a major prob lem We are nevertheless con cerned with such a serious blemish on the life of many big cities New York and California are estimated to have three fourths of the estimated 60000 drug addicts in the country The problem such con cern that President Kennedy has called a White House con ference at which the full truth about addiction and a course best calculated to curb it will be sought Numerous bills have been in troduced in Congress to amend present narcotics laws Most of them would strengthen facilities for medical treatment and re habilitation of addicts It isnt to be doubted that the trend is toward a more humanitarian viewpoint Federal
