In Tr i OS Iji Need for research is because the public won't toler- ate "an indefinite reliance on inadequate knowledge'' to jus- tify current policy. Present public policy on re- search is "too heavily enced by the attitude of law enforcement authorities." Police slmuid avoid entrap- ment and violence in gaining evidence in drug cases. The commission is pursuing a major research project on drug use. Cost of enforcing drug laws appears "out of all proportion to the relative effectiveness of the law.1' Extent of non-medical drug use in Canada is widespread. Drug .education should be more realistic because "we can no longer rely on the ap- peal to a sense of morality." Certain antihisiamines, cough and cold remedies and i taining phenacetin should be j available only on doctor prs- s c r i p t i o n o t over the j counter as at present. j Research on effects, extent, causes, prevention and treat- ment of non-medical drug use should be pursued "with all possible vigor." Federal governmert should promote and aid research. Stimulation of research and evaluation of data should be done by an i n d e p c n dent agency "that ha.s no connec- tion with the responsibility for law enforcement." Amphetamines and barbi- j titrates should be subject to i closer production, import and j prescription controls. Canada should initiate an independent research p r o- gram inio marijuana, with government-controlled cultiva- tion, production and standar- dization for research pur- poses.
