Appeal: It's Time to STOP Wasting Time, Money & Lives

Dear friend of drug law reform:

We have an historic opportunity to change drug policy right now because three major events are happening simultaneously.

I'll explain that in a moment, but first I want to ASK for your support at this important time.

Your membership in StoptheDrugWar.org will enable us to reach people in communities all across our nation and the world. I encourage you to join us today as we launch our exciting new 2009 "Changing Minds, Laws & Lives" campaign.

Now... here are the three converging events that have us so optimistic about 2009:

First, the Obama administration is doing a pretty good job of following through on its campaign promises for drug law reform — not perfect, but pretty good. Second, the economic crisis is forcing all government agencies — including correctional systems — to rethink their financial priorities. And third, we keep breaking visitor records at StoptheDrugWar.org. As the world's #1 source for news, information and activism promoting sensible drug law reform, we know that the more visitors we get, the more we're building the anti-prohibition movement.

Your participation at this point in history is very important, and I'd like to send you some free gifts to show our appreciation.

For a contribution of $36, you can choose either of our new StoptheDrugWar.org T-shirts pictured above — "Prohibition Doesn't Work" or "STOP" (click for an enlarged view). For a gift of $60 or more, you get both shirts. And for a contribution of $100 or more, you also get your choice of any single item from the StoptheDrugWar.org inventory.

Your membership today will make an immediate impact by helping StoptheDrugWar.org (DRCNet):

  • Produce more internet videos like "SWAT Raids -- No One is Safe" and fund more actions like our upcoming News Rewriting Project.
  • Grow the groundswell for change by helping grassroots organizations — our movement's "boots on the ground" — reach out to more people.
  • Pressure the Obama Administration to make good on all of its promises and lobby Congress to make smart funding choices by providing the truth about the Drug War.
  • Break more records*! With each improvement to our web site, we become an even more powerful resource for anyone (including media and politicians) to find information about the Drug War.

What you and I and our friends are doing together is working. We can't back off now. By taking advantage of the opportunity we have during this pro-reform climate, we can change minds, change laws and, most importantly, change good people's lives.

Thank you very much,

David Borden
Executive Director, StoptheDrugWar.org (DRCNet)

P.S. It's time to stop wasting time, money and good people's lives. Please join us in "Changing Minds, Laws & Lives" by adding your support to StoptheDrugWar.org while we have this unique opportunity. Thank you!

* We set yet another record for online visitors in March — 235,000 — in a long line of record-breaking months these past two years.

Progress... But...

Progress... But... I thought I heard someone say obama was a professor of constituional law or something like that?

I find that statement to be laughable if true... really a professor... someone that understands the constitution?

Forget the fact that as prez. obama is sworn to protect and defend the constitution... when possible i guess... because the constituion, and other founding principles, have been reduced to political and religious opinion... and convenience.

Understand and exercise your rights everyday!

Humanistically Yours,
Smokin' Since '75

Im suprised that all the terrorist war against drugs racketeers

have not had their fucking houses burned down,then lined up and shot execution style for all the horrible pain their prohibition fraud has created. Anti Drug cops and politicians should be sentenced to the prisons they had built as all the political prisoners are released to make room. Make no mistake ; The Drug War like prohibition is operated by terrorists in your town!

t-shirts

i'm from australia and would love to buy the t-shirts but they're just a bit too expensive for me. i do write the letters from your website and hope australia comes to its sense regarding prohibition one day soon.

hope the man keeps his word

as my time counts done to get prepared to do 87-102 months via my plea bargin for conspiracy to manufacture and deliver m.j. any glimmer of hope excites me. the war is stupid. i will leave behind a beautiful married/single mom of three. i have no priors and never beat any of the peaple up who got over on me with my loot. I,ll get the most time cuz all the others i was teaching to help their kids and families to be happier sad its all my fault. now to help the econy there is 5 houses in foreclosure and countlkess credit accounts not gonna get paid. 8 people in the case no assets recovered and the cost for the cas will be 250,000 + a year to lock us up. do you feel safer now?

Where are the shirts for the kids?

Nothing would please me more than the opportunity to put my son in a Stop the Drug War onesie or baby tshirt. That would get a fat donation from this family.
