Dear DRCNet reader:

Phil Smith and The Week Online will be on vacation next week. We will return on Friday, August 22 with a landmark issue, #300. The Week Online is also having a name change. Effective issue #300, we will be known as "Drug War Chronicle." The official web page of the newsletter will be -- visit it now to check out our new, expanded format, which in addition to the one-web-page-per-issue format will also include a one-page-per-article version with tell-a-friend and comment functions.

We are also working on topical news archive pages to supplement our current reverse chronological full archive. And, we plan to offer, hopefully by next issue, a new subscription option, receiving only the table of contents with web links and announcements in your e-mail, instead of the full text as everyone receives now (with the full-text option still available). Please feel free to send us suggestions; the new format has been designed in a way to enable us to make most format changes across the full archive at once, as opposed to page by page, and

Much has happened in drug policy and reform efforts since the Week Online started in 1997. If you are wanting for reading next week, take a browse through our archives and refresh your memory on the events of the past six years. The new archive page can be found at online.

DRCNet will have one or more bulletins during the next two weeks, including legislative updates and perhaps mini-news briefings, and all other work will continue. Thank you for being a part of our organization and of drug policy reform, and see you soon.
