NOTES TO OUR READERS:

Due to the UN activities, as well as other business that the DRCNet staff attended to in New York, we regret that we were unable to publish The Week Online last week.  But we're back this week with issue #46.  Thanks to everyone who participated in the many events held across the globe who helped to raise awareness of the growing opposition to the Drug War.  To everyone who collected email addresses for DRCNet, please send them in (we'll pick up the postage costs) so that we can get those new subscribers onto the network.

Rather than provide a piecemeal account of the various events, we will endeavor, in the coming weeks, to post accounts of each event on the Global Days web page at http://www.stopthedrugwar.org/globalcoalition/.  If you attended (or helped organize) an event and you would like to share your experience with others, please email us with your observations.  This has been an important two weeks for reformers, and we at DRCNet are proud to be working with all of you in our efforts to bring this war, and its attendant human misery, to a speedy end.

Please also note that our local Internet service provider lost about a week's worth of e-mail sent to the DRCNet list manager account, [email protected]  (This is the account to which your mail would go if you replied directly to one of our bulletins.)  If you wrote to that address with an address change or removal, or because your copy of Marijuana Myths, Marijuana Facts hadn't shown up, or for any other reason, please write us again at [email protected] and we will process your request this week.

Speaking of Marijuana Myths, Marijuana Facts, we've mailed out all but the last five copies ordered (we're waiting for the copies to show up here).  If you think you have a copy coming to you, but haven't received it yet, please let us know, and we will check the database and resend it if necessary.

We are please to announce that Mike Gray's book, "Drug Crazy", has been officially released, and we have seen them prominently displayed on many bookstore shelves in the area.  We urge you to go to your nearby store and purchase or order, or at least inquire about, this exciting new chapter in the anti-prohibition effort.  (And when you do, check out page 203!)  If you're not going to go the bookstore route, but might consider ordering it online, visit our site at http://www.drcnet.org/rapid/1998/5-22.html#drugcrazy and follow the link to amazon.com, and DRCNet will earn 15 percent from your purchase.
