Students for Sensible Drug Policy has opened
its online store, offering sales of perhaps the nicest drug reform t-shirts
yet made. A portion of the proceeds will go to assist students who
have lost financial aid under the drug provision of the Higher Education
Act of 1998 (HEA drug provision). Visit http://www.ssdp.org
to make your purchase!
The campaign to overturn the HEA drug provision,
led by DRCNet and SSDP, is growing at breakneck speed. In the last
two weeks alone, more than 90 people have requested or downloaded activist
packets from the campaign's web site, and new student government endorsements
of the campaign's resolution are being approved faster than ever.
The latest to come on board are Ohio State University, Brandeis University
(MA), South Carolina State University and Mt. Holyoke College (MA).
to download a packet or send a free e-mail or fax to Congress calling for
repeal of the HEA drug provision.
