The campaign to repeal the drug provision of the Higher Education Act continues to garner favorable publicity for the issue. On Monday, April 5, Dr. Marc Shinderman, head of a major methadone treatment program in Chicago, responded to the recent New York Times story with a letter to the editor on the topic -- visit http://www.nytimes.com/2004/04/05/opinion/L05ADDI.html to read it!

An article with which we had no direct role in prompting (that we know of) appeared on March 30 in the Sacramento Bee, showing that our media efforts are getting the word out and fostering a wider level of interest and awareness in the issue. Visit http://www.sacbee.com/content/news/columns/erwin/story/8693948p-9621708c.html to read the Bee's story.

Our friends at Students for Sensible Drug Policy continue to rack up press hits too. Some of the following articles mention SSDP, some involved other members of our coalition, some don't, but check them out regardless:
