The Week Online will take a one week hiatus next week, for the Thanksgiving holiday, and will return on December 4. If you are looking for something to read in the meantime, try browsing some of the many documents in the DRCNet Online Drug Policy Library at http://www.druglibrary.org. One of our favorites is The History of the Marijuana Laws, a speech by Prof. Charles Whitebread of the University of Southern California School of Law, to the California Judges Association's annual conference, online at http://www.druglibrary.org/schaffer/History/whiteb1.htm, with links to many more important documents, including the full text of the 1972 Report of the National Commission on Marihuana and Drug Abuse, the Hearings of the Marihuana Tax Act and more. All of us, Dave, Adam, Karynn and Kris wish all of you a happy and a healthy Thanksgiving!
