As presently constituted, the system is not in a position to meet his underlying medical and social problems.
Seite 24 - On the other hand, we recommend legislative regulations upon the sale of sexual materials to young persons who do not have the consent of their parents, and we also recommend legislation to protect persons from having sexual materials thrust upon them without their consent through the mails or through open public display.
