TABLE OF CONTENTS

    National Marijuana Parks
  1. EDITORIAL: LONG MEMORIES
    Issue #400 seems as good a time as any to show off our long memories at DRCNet. David Borden's long memory points to a double standard in Ohio officialdom's outlook on possible ethical violations by the governor now vs. three years ago when the drug reform measure Question One was on the state's ballot.
  2. APPEAL: PLEASE MAKE A 400TH ISSUE DONATION TO DRCNET FOR DRUG WAR CHRONICLE
    DRCNet reaches an important milestone today -- your support is needed for there to be more.
  3. FEATURE: KILLER DRUG RAIDS -- WHAT'S THE ALTERNATIVE?
    Drug War Chronicle reports with depressing regularity on the needless deaths of people, both innocent and guilty, at the hands of police in the course of anti-drug enforcement. What's the alternative to killer drug raids?
  4. FEATURE: DC "TWO MILLION IS TOO MANY" PRISON RALLY LAYS GROUNDWORK FOR MORE, BETTER COLLABORATION
    Roughly a thousand people showed up in Lafayette Park across from the White House Saturday for the first national rally aimed at ending this country's reliance on mass incarceration.
  5. EUROPE: LEADER OF LIBERAL DEMOCRATS IN EUROPEAN PARLIAMENT SAYS LEGALIZE IT ALL
    The leader of Britain's Liberal Democrat party in the European Parliament has called for the legalization and regulation of all currently illicit drugs.
  6. WEEKLY: THIS WEEK'S CORRUPT COPS STORIES
    This week it's more jail guards in trouble, a US soldier pleading guilty to coke-smuggling, and a Florida cop turned drug dealer.
  7. BLOGGING: NATIONAL MARIJUANA PARKS
    DRCNet's Prohibition in the Media blog points to an Associated Press story on marijuana cultivation in Arizona's national forests that missed the point.
  8. METHAMPHETAMINE: IN ANTI-METH LAB MOVE, OREGON BECOMES FIRST STATE TO REQUIRE PRESCRIPTION FOR COLD, ALLERGY MEDICATIONS
    Oregonians wanting Sudafed will now have to get a prescription, thanks to a legislature and governor who hope it will help curb meth labs.
  9. METHAMPHETAMINE: SOUDER ATTACKS HHS FOR FUNDING HIV METH CONFERENCE
    A leading congressional drug warrior has angrily criticized the Department of Health and Human Services for allowing itself to be named as a "primary sponsor" of this weekend's first National Conference on HIV, Hepatitis and Methamphetamine. But prominent Utahns weren't with him on this one.
  10. ASIA: MORE REEFER MADNESS FROM THE PHILIPPINES
    Hysteria over marijuana has been commonplace in the Philippines for years, and remarks this week by the National Police Deputy Director are a fine example.
  11. WEB SCAN
    Seattle Weekly on the Drug Issue
  12. WEEKLY: THIS WEEK IN HISTORY
    Events and quotes of note from this week's drug policy events of years past.
  13. WEEKLY: THE REFORMER'S CALENDAR
