Good news: The Senate version of California's anti-ecstasy bill, SB 1103, was voted down in committee 3-2. This bill appears to have been defeated -- thanks in part to nearly a thousand of you who used our web site to lobby against it. If you haven't already been there -- http://www.stopthedrugwar.org/ca-ecstasy/ -- take a look to learn a little more about the issue and send a letter anyway -- the Assembly vote hasn't taken place yet, and they could still try something else, so making your opinion known is still a good idea. In the meantime, thank you for helping to draw a "line in the sand" against this extreme legislation!
