Last Week's Alert: DRCNet Gets WIRED!! 7/10/97

On Friday, July 3, DRCNet was featured in the top story of WIRED News, one of the largest daily news service on the Net. ("Taking on the Culture of Prohibition.") Steven Silberman wrote the piece which featured numerous links to various sections of our web sites and plenty of quotes from Dave and Adam.

The article was written largely in response to the New York Times front page story of June 20, "A Seductive Drug Culture Flourishes on the Internet," as well as Drug Czar Barry McCaffrey's announcement that the government will spend $400,000 in cyberspace to counteract "pro-drug, pro-legalization opportunities to learn."

The piece discussed DRCNet's growing web presence and our reasons for taking the fight on-line. This type of major coverage shows that we are earning our stripes in the eyes of those who know and cover the Internet, and it will certainly help to grow the Rapid Response Network, which is already the single most important citizen action network in the drug policy reform movement. You can find the piece at Check it out and let WIRED know that you appreciate their coverage of the serious side of "drugs on the net".

FOR EXTRA CREDIT: Send a copy of the piece to the Internet reporter for your local paper. Tell them you believe that a movement is growing right on their beat and that they ought to cover it.
