Thank you to the more than 900 of you who participated in our Drug Crazy Giveaway Contest. As promised, we are announcing the five winners in this issue. For privacy reasons we have decided not to include the winners' last names, but only the first name, last initial, and state or country.

We're sorry we can only give away five copies of Mike Gray's Drug Crazy: How We Got Into This Mess and How We Can Get Out. But we hope you will go ahead and buy a copy and read and support this important book, perhaps the best exposition of prohibition and the drug ever written for the popular audience. You can read the book's first chapter, endorsements, editorials by the author, online at -- follow the Buy Online link to purchase a copy though, and DRCNet will earn 15% from your purchase. Better still would be to pick up or order a copy from your local bookstore -- maybe they'll order more copies or even put them in display!

One of the reasons we made this special offer was to learn more about our readers and what their interests are, hence the online survey included in the contest form. If you didn't enter the contest, but want to help us figure out how to provide more of what interests you, please visit the form at and fill out the survey. We can't offer a book this time, but your participation in the survey will help us do our job better and bring our ultimate goal of a sensible drug policy closer to reality.

So, without further delay, the winners are...

John O., California
John B., South Carolina
Arthur B., New Hampshire
Brian O., Georgia
Matthew G., California
If you are one of these five lucky winners, you have already been notified by e-mail. If not, maybe you'll win the next contest! Thanks again for participating, and thanks for being a part of DRCNet.
