Well, 1997 is just about over, and what a year it's been for the reform movement! 1998 promises to be an even more eventful year with several medical marijuana initiatives in the works, the first-ever UN Special Session on Narcotics scheduled for June, and progress expected on numerous fronts. The most important thing that will happen next year, however, is continued education on this issue. At DRCNet, we're committed to making this happen, and, with your help, we hope to be reaching a far larger audience in 1998.
Our special thanks go out to everyone who has supported our work this year, even if it was just by sending a note of thanks. If you haven't already done so, perhaps you'll consider giving a holiday gift to the cause of reform by sending a donation. (Information on how is included at the bottom of the newsletter.) You might also consider checking out EyeGive, an innovative new program which supports your favorite non-profit. (Learn more by visiting http://www.eyegive.com/html/ssi.cfm?CID=1060.) We would also like to thank everyone who took the time this year to send us a news story (our subscribers are an important part of our information pipeline) or wrote a piece for The Week Online or for the web site.
Last, we would like to extend our best wishes for a better year to all of the victims of the War, as well as to their families and friends. It is for you, and for the hundreds of thousands who will be joining in your suffering during the next year of the War, that we do our work. Our hearts and our thoughts go out to you in this season, and all we can say is "keep the faith." There are people out here working on your behalf, and we won't rest until the War is over.
So to one and all, have a wonderful and a healthy holiday. And may we suggest that you resolve this New Year to do just a little bit more, to write just one more letter, or to raise your voice just a little bit louder in the cause of reform in 1998. Truth and justice are certainly on our side. And together we will change the world. Peace.
Adam and Dave
