Newsbriefs, an in-depth drug
policy publication of the National Drug Strategy Network (NDSN), published
its millennium and final issue. Deciding that the Internet age has
changed the nature and relative value of different kinds of publications
and made news widely available online, NDSN and its parent, the Criminal
Justice Policy Foundation (CJPF), have decided to instead increase their
focus on other important work -- providing information to the public and
supporting research into issues such as mandatory minimum sentences, drug
sentences, the crack and powder cocaine sentencing disparity, asset forfeiture,
juvenile delinquency, prison construction and much more. CJPF is
headed by DRCNet advisory board member Eric Sterling, former counsel to
the House Judiciary Committee.
CJPF will also publish a
quarterly newsletter, On Balance, sent for free to contributors.
Send contributions to The Criminal Justice Policy Foundation, 1225 Eye
St., NW, Suite 500, Washington, DC 20005, or call (202) 312-2015 or e-mail
[email protected] for further information.
CJPF requests that persons contributing news clippings continue to do so.
Last but not least, years
worth of Newsbriefs are archived online and available at http://www.ndsn.org.
This is a phenomenal resource on much of the past decade's drug policy
history, and we encourage you to check it out.
