Long-time readers may remember summer 2000 events we participated in, "Shadow Conventions" held outside the Democratic and Republican conventions to draw attention to neglected issues including the failed drug war. The Huffington Post is currently holding an online "shadow convention," today focusing again on drug policy.
HuffPost Live drug war coverage is taking place from 12-4pm EST (now) and 6-10pm EST, at http://live.huffingtonpost.com. I am scheduled for a panel at about 2:30pm, dealing with the drug provision of the Higher Education Act.
There is also commentary currently being linked to from the Huffington Post home page, including a piece by our Associate Editor and blogger, Scott Morgan, "Obama's Embarrassing Silence on Marijuana."
Thank you for supporting StoptheDrugWar.org, and look for important announcements coming out soon about the organization, important developments in the issue, and of course this week's Drug War Chronicle, Thursday morning in your email and on our web site every day.
