By ROGER GREENE AP Newsfeatures Writer WASHINGTON Is a drug addict a victim of circumstances or his own weakness more to be pitied than condemned? Should he be spoon-fed dope under government control so he go out and steal to get money to gratify his craving? Or is he a menace to society a real or potential 1 who- will rape or kill to satisfy his feelings? Should he be banished into exile until either cured or dies? Dope is no remote problem pon to eomnat tne vicious macs market in narcotics? 3 Why is the federal system of narcotic treatment a failure? (Less than 15 per cent of treated addicts are ever cured) WHERE SHOULD THEY GO? 4 Should addicts be segregated like lepers perhaps sent to an island prison away from and kept there until cured?
