If Califano is correct in his assertion that "we have here at CASA the brightest group of people that have been ever put under one roof on this planet to deal with this problem," then it would appear that the "errors" are most probably intentional misrepresentations. Or in ordinary language, CASA is almost certainly lying. (Shea, C. Thou Shalt Not: Once a Presidential Adviser and Legal Heavyweight, Joe Califano Now is Thundering Against Drugs.

35. Shea, C. Thou Shalt Not: Once a Presidential Adviser and Legal Heavyweight, Joe Califano Now Is Thundering Against Drugs. And Woe Be to Those Who Doubt His Data or Get in His Way. Washingtonian Magazine, October, 1998. Shea describes Califano as the scourge of anyone who dares to disagree with him. His fanaticism makes Califano see things in black or white and indifferent to scientific evidence. His intolerance and closed-mindedness can be seen in Shea's inteview with him reported in the article above:

Should a 45-year-old, I asked, have the right to light up a joint on his back porch with no one around?

He cut me off before I could get it out. "Should a 45-year-old have the right to shoot heroin in his backyard?" he barked. "Should a 45-year-old have the right to, you know, snort cocaine in his backyard? Should a 45-year-old have the right to put a bullet through his head? Okay?
