(renamed "Drug War Chronicle" effective issue #300, August 2003)
Issue #41, 5/10/98
"Raising Awareness of the Consequences of Drug Prohibition"
Last week's issue incorrectly identified H. Res. 372, the "Sense of the House" resolution against medical marijuana, as H.R. 372, a different bill altogether. In the meantime, action on House Resolution 372 has been delayed again, perhaps due to the large response generated by activists. If you have not done so already, please contact your Representative and urge him or her to vote NO! Capitol Switchboard: (202) 225-3121.
Keep the calls flowing in to the bookstores for Mike Gray's DRUG CRAZY, the book that will blow the lid off of Drug Prohibition's conspiracy of silence. (See our alert at http://www.drcnet.org/rapid/1998/4-29.html.) Your phone calls to bookstores in your area -- whether big chains or local independent stores -- will make the booksellers look twice at Drug Crazy and help propel it to the bestseller list. Just call up, ask them if they have Drug Crazy, from Random House, and say thank you. (You don't even have to order a copy, though you may as well, because it's well worth the price.) Many of you have done this already, and we think it's having an effect. DRCNet is lauded and prominently featured in the book's appendix, together with an Internet directory of drug policy reform and informational resources, so building up Drug Cray will build DRCNet and the movement too! Some book chains that may be in your area: Crown, Barnes & Noble, B. Dalton, Border's, Doubleday, Brentano's, Scribner's, Waldenbooks -- let us know if we've missed any, so we can add them to the next alert. Call, call, call!
