More Web Site Success: Another Big Digg Hit Last Week Massively Increased Our Web Site Traffic

Posted in:

DRCNet blogger Scott Morgan has again made it to the front page of the popular web site Digg, with McCain and Giuliani Say Terrible Things to a Medical Marijuana Patient, nearly 38,000 reads so far and counting. Thanks to support provided by members like you over the last several weeks, our server was ready to handle the traffic.

As I'm sure you realize, the costs of the machine, while significant, are only part of the picture. Literally every staff member at DRCNet is involved in this web campaign, and that's a major devotion of resources that can only be sustained if you support us. Could you let us know that you're "in" by making a donation today, or by sending us an email to let us know if you will be soon?

As an encouragement, our friends at Common Sense for Drug Policy have agreed to donate copies of their updated "tabloid" publication including over 40 of the drug policy reform public service ads they have run in major publications for the past several years. Donate any amount to DRCNet as part of this campaign, and we will send you a copy of the CSDP tabloid for free! Of course we continue to offer a range of books, videos and StoptheDrugWar.org gift items as member incentives as well.

Please visit our site if you haven't in awhile -- you'll find a professionally redesigned site, daily blog posts, mainstream news links, an "activist feed" of bulletins from other organizations, and of course the weekly Drug War Chronicle and many other interesting items. With your continued support we will take the message about ending prohibition to more and more people in more and more ways this year and next!

To donate, visit http://stopthedrugwar.org/donate to make a donation online, or send your check or money order to: DRCNet, P.O. Box 18402, Washington, DC 20036. Donations to Drug Reform Coordination Network to support our lobbying work are not tax-deductible. Tax-deductible donations to support our educational work can be made payable to DRCNet Foundation, same address. We can also accept contributions of stock -- email [email protected] for the necessary info. Thank you in advance for your support.

Sincerely,

David Borden, Executive Director
