Coinciding with this year's Academy Awards, in which the film "Traffic" has been nominated for five Oscars, the Lindesmith Center-Drug Policy Foundation has launched an online campaign to raise awareness of the movie's drug policy reform message.

"Millions of people who have seen the movie Traffic are suddenly questioning the futility and destructiveness of our nation's drug war," said Ethan Nadelmann, Executive Director of Lindesmith-DPF. We wanted to give people something they could do when they got out of Traffic. The movie got people stirred up and got them thinking -- we hope to inspire them to get involved."

Visitors to StopTheWar.com can play an online game in which they select strategies to try to "win" the war on drugs. The site also features a daily drawing to win a free Traffic DVD or video.
