Police., students clash CAIRO (Heuter) A pitched battle between police and stone-throwing students took place again today in one o! Cai- ro's main streets after police had driven some protest- ing students out of Cairo's main square. Riot police warned students who regrouped in side streets around Liberation Square to dis- perse but they refused to do so. Police then waded into them with batons amid student screams. Some 5ft) stone-throwing stu- dents were cordoned off by po- lice and some arrests were made. Shops hurriedly closed their shutters and the streets were once again deserted except for some shop owners busy clearing up the debris.

Hie Alberta chapter of fee College of Family Physicians of Oinada took no formal stand on tin iuue, but the con- sensus in ttudy seMkms was that earmabii should not be Illegal and ougit to be re- moved from the criminal code. Although come called for the stricter control of Illegal drugs, most of the docton In dlwuM- ing the drug favored in- vestigation tod education to lead to controlled uee of mari- juana. The session was led by Ken Low, director of the Calgary Public School Board's drug education program. He told die physician that they must "recognize me whole area of drug uee outside of treir traditional experience." "Our society probably doesn't understand its own use of in- toxicants any more man the Americans Mr. Low said. Physicians are trained to see all drug use as therapeutic while the "recreational pur- suite of intoxication" aims at recreating a state of well-being in the individual. This type of drug use "dove- tallf very nicely with the my pur society is set Mr. Low said, referring to alcoholism, the o[ barbituates and va- rious stimulants, as well as marijuana and hallucinogens used by youth. Many docton, nurses, law- yers, teachers and other pro- fessionals use cannabis regu- larly, be said, while "kids who ire otherwise socially ami psychologically Bound are be- ing exposed ID destructive ex- perience in the nation's jaill." And the old story of how marijuana leads to the harder stuff is a red herring, Mr. Low said. The problem lies in the social condition that leads to drug use. The use of the drug raetha- dbne as a substitute for heroin is not an answer since It Is just as addictive as heroin. However, It enables addict! to stabilize their lives and in many oases hold regular jobs. Between 60 and 100 people are receiving methadone from a provincial clinic in Edmon- ton. Although no such clinic is planned for Calgary, there will eventually be a methadbne centre for all of Alberta. A British program reg- istering heroin addicts and supplying them witti the drug has been most successful.
