    HONG KONG, July 31 (Reuter) - Two of Hong Kong's top judges want the use of
the drug cannabis legalised.
     One High Court judge, Justice Godfrey, said the ban made no sense while
alcohol and tobacco were legal, the South China Sunday Morning Post reported.
     "I am for decriminalisation," Godfrey, 61, said. "Since human beings are
allowed to smoke themselves to death with cigarettes they ought to be allowed to
smoke marijuana in the privacy of their own homes."

     NEW YORK, May 20 (Reuter) - Legendary figures of the "Beat Generation," who
fused counterculture, sexual experimentation and drugs into an art form,
converged on Greenwich Village for a 50th anniversary conference -- looking
grayer, sedate and even professorial.
     Rather than dress and behave like rebels, they resembled literary statesmen
Friday, dignified and quite proper.

LEGALIZE IT?: The results of a new survey showing that American college
students overwhelmingly favor the legalization of marijuana comes as a surprise
to anti-drug and pro-legalization advocates alike. Allen St. Pierre, spokesman
for the National Organization for the Reform of Marijuana Laws, said the U.
Magazine survey of 1,700 students at 230 schools shows the media has failed to
recognize the growing support among students, environmentalists and doctors for
legalization. But anti-drug advocates questioned the accuracy of the survey. Sue

BLOOMINGTON, Ill. (UPI) -- Bloomington city officials recently lessened the
criminal penalties for possession of marijuana, but that will not do two Texas
men any good.

than 2.5 grams of marijuana will only receive a ticket and $250 fine.
   The two men, Billy Wayne Sessions and Lonnie Session, both of Childress,
Texas, were caught Tuesday just north of Bloomington driving a truck containing
2,740 pounds of pot valued at $5.48 million, buried underneath 33,000 pounds of
cabbage.
