A state panel that sets standards for police hiring and training throughout Maryland is considering a proposal that would allow recruits to become police officers even if they had experimented with heroin, LSD and PCP - a move aimed at increasing the pool of applicants for short-staffed departments. The plan, however, is drawing stiff opposition from a broad range of police commanders and union leaders who contend that hiring officers who have used those substances sends the wrong message about the acceptability of criminal behavior.

Toni Brown of Brooklyn, N.Y., figures it was three years ago when she first noticed something weird going on in her mailbox.As editor of Relix, a magazine dedicated largely to the Grateful Dead, she was receiving loads of mail from fans -- Deadheads. Many were written from inside federal prisons."And it was not just a few isolated letters," said Ms. Brown, whose magazine has become so swamped with such letters today that it prints them under a new section, dubbed "Heads Behind Bars."What Ms. Brown was seeing back in 1991 were the first results of an undercover operation by the federal Drug Enforcement Agency, as well as local and state police, to target the buying and selling of LSD at Grateful Dead concerts.

The evidence of a resurgence is almost everywhere -- from the kids in tie-dyed T-shirts in the malls to the Grateful Dead stickers on Jeeps and Cabriolets. The oldies are playing again on the radio, though new voices are humming along.These are the children of the baby boomers, who ushered in the counter-culture. From all indications they are enthralled with the romanticism of the '60s. Perhaps it is predictable from a generation that grew up without a cause. Regardless, it is a worrisome prospect for drug treatment officials because along with the cultural trappings has come increased use of LSD -- particularly in the suburbs.
