We've been informed that this Sunday, March 3, Sixty Minutes will feature the case of Dr. Robert Weitzel, a pain doctor in Utah targeted by a prosecutorial witch hunt.  TV magazines are notorious for last-minute schedule changes, but barring that possibility there should be an interesting discussion.

Visit these back articles from August on the Weitzel case:

The Ogden Standard-Examiner ran an article today previewing the Sixty Minutes report.

Last week DRCNet reported that the Libertarian Party intended to run newspaper advertisements parodying and responding to the federal government's drug use-terrorism ads (http://www.drcnet.org/wol/225.html#lpadcampaign).  The ads did in fact run this week, in the Washington Times and USA Today on Tuesday, February 26.  If you can't find a copy of the papers (well worth cutting out and sticking on the wall), you can still check them out at http://www.lp.org/drugwar/ online.
