(AP) •^California today becomes the first state to clamp controls on the ' fantasy-producing' drug LSD. Gov. Edmund G. Brown explained a prime aim is to protect "young thrill-seekers." The governor put the issue before'the special session of the state legislature , and it re. sponded after lengthy hearings with overwhelming support for the legislation. Brown signs the bill into, law today. He declared in a prepared statement, "This bill will not hamper proper use of the drug for legitimate purposes — experimentation and psychotherapy. It will help curb dangerous and unauthorized use." * * * "Congress is still debating a law for this drug," he said' in noting recent congressional hearings. "We have one." His office said that while other states are moving against the drug, none has yet had a crackdown signed into law. It makes unauthorized possession or knowing use of the drug a misdemeanor punishable by a maximum fine of $1,000 or a year in county jail. Illegal manufacture, posses sion for the purpose of sale, o sale of LSD ii a. felony bringiq penalties of one to five year imprisonment for the first oi fense and two to 10 years fo repeated lawbreaking. ! As in our antlnarcotics laws we have reserved our toughes penalties for the people who would peddle this drug illegal y," Brown said at his temporary Los Angeles home, site o :he bill signing. Announcement of the bill signing came at Sac ramento. Communist China. Sens. Edward M. Kennedy, Mass., and George S. McGovern, D-S.D., who proposed the policy inquiry in recent Senate speeches have not been able to get any encouragement from the White House. At the State Department, the word is that Johnson has turned thumbs down on the proposal. But the senators are not giving MP Iwpe of an eventual favorable decision. If it chooses, Congress could set up a commission of recog- jnized national leaders to hold hearings and advise It what to do about lessening tensions with Peking. * * * Vice President Hubert H. Humphrey is reported favorable to that idea. But Kennedy and McGovern have no present plans to introduce a resolution for such an inquiry. The two senators are reported to feel. t|iat their commission proposal, following the China hearings held by the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, lias prodded the administration into reviewing its policies toward the Peking regime. Secretary of State Dean Rusk has moved toward enlarging unofficial contacts between Communist China and the United States but the State Department says these efforts have been rebuffed by Peking thus far. Diplomatic contacts continue between the two governments In Warsaw and Rusk publicly has expressed U.S. willingness to sit down with the Chinese to dis- cuss disarmament and non proliferation of nuclear weapon's. Rusk has said the United States. is avoiding the assumption that there will be "unending and inevitable" hostility between the two nations. He has tried to reassure Peking that tills country does not intend to attack mainland China. However, (he administration is holding firm to its commitment to defend tin Republic of China on Formosa against attack and it continues to work to prevent the expulsion of Nation- alist China from the United Nations and to oppose Red China's admission to that body.
