Feedback: Do You Read Drug War Chronicle?

Posted in:

Do you read Drug War Chronicle? If so, we'd like to hear from you. DRCNet needs two things:

  1. We are in between newsletter grants, and that makes our need for donations more pressing. Drug War Chronicle is free to read but not to produce! Click here to make a donation by credit card or PayPal, or to print out a form to send in by mail.

  2. Please send quotes and reports on how you put our flow of information to work, for use in upcoming grant proposals and letters to funders or potential funders. Do you use DRCNet as a source for public speaking? For letters to the editor? Helping you talk to friends or associates about the issue? Research? For your own edification? Have you changed your mind about any aspects of drug policy since subscribing, or inspired you to get involved in the cause? Do you reprint or repost portions of our bulletins on other lists or in other newsletters? Do you have any criticisms or complaints, or suggestions? We want to hear those too. Please send your response -- one or two sentences would be fine; more is great, too -- email [email protected] or reply to a Chronicle email or use our online comment form. Please let us know if we may reprint your comments, and if so, if we may include your name or if you wish to remain anonymous. IMPORTANT: Even if you have given us this kind of feedback before, we could use your updated feedback now too -- we need to hear from you!

Again, please help us keep Drug War Chronicle alive at this important time! Click here to make a donation online, or send your check or money order to: DRCNet, P.O. Box 18402, Washington, DC 20036. Make your check payable to DRCNet Foundation to make a tax-deductible donation for Drug War Chronicle -- remember if you select one of our member premium gifts that will reduce the portion of your donation that is tax-deductible -- or make a non-deductible donation for our lobbying work -- online or check payable to Drug Reform Coordination Network, same address. We can also accept contributions of stock -- email [email protected] for the necessary info.

I read your email! Thank You for your dedication to our cause

I work during the day at an attorneys office in Myrtle Beach, SC. At night I am a mother, a wife, a musician and in general a business woman. To say the least, my time is extremely valuable and limited.

I am very thankful for your email telling me the weekly news. I always take action immediately when I can to email the president and my representatives. Today I emailed the president about his horrible sense of humor and laughing at such an important issue.

In addition to emailing my friends and family on the issue, posting blogs, and updating my twitter, today I spent my free time commenting news reports and blogs on this issue.

Thank you again for everything that you do.

Ps. If you are curious about what I commented today, this is what I have been writing:

I am very disappointed with Obama and his complete lack of respect for us, the people.

Obama pledged "to open up the White House to the American people." I'm one of the tens of millions of Americans who believe that cannabis should be legally regulated like alcohol. I'm also one of the tens of thousands of Americans who voted to make this subject the most popular question online at Presidential Town Hall. I'm disappointed to learn that he believes that my voice doesn't really matter.

Under UPDATE is a paragraph with a link where you can send an email or a typed letter to President Obama. Lets the flood the White House with response so they can not avoid this issue.

We ARE the people. The government is supposed to reflect our decisions and opinions.

This is not a laughing matter Mr. President.

LEGALIZING CANNABIS WILL STIMULATE OUR ECONOMY AND CREATE BILLIONS OF DOLLARS.

Legalizing cannabis would save us money in expenditures like court and prison costs, AND it would provide a major boost to the economy through taxes. Making thousands of Americans small business owners over night and provide jobs for many more. Without taking into consideration how much money would be saved in court and prison costs, California anticipates over $1.5 billion within the first year.

In a time where people are concerned with job security, let alone for the thousands attempting to find a job to begin with, just to make money to feed, house our families and afford medical bills, we should NOT laugh at the most viable solution we have in front of us.
