Submitted by David Borden on (Issue #664)

As year's end approaches, I hope you will make a generous donation to support our campaigns in 2011. traffic has grown dramatically, as the chart to the left shows, most recently reaching half a million people during the month preceding the election. But the improvements to our web site and publishing which made that possible haven't stopped:

  • We are installing a new look on the site reflecting the optimism of the post-Prop 19 era.
  • We are setting up a mobile web site.
  • We are preparing a major expansion of our publishing that will provide powerful tools to activists, journalists, policymakers and others to help them understand and make the case for drug policy reform.

Your support plays a major role in deciding just how far we can take these campaigns. Please make a generous donation to support our campaigns in 2011. A tax-deductible donation to DRCNet Foundation will support our educational programs; a non-deductible donation to Drug Reform Coordination Network will support our lobbying work. Donations can be made online by credit card or PayPal, and you can also use our donation form to print out a convenient form to mail in. Or, you can send a check or money order instead to P.O. Box 18402, Washington, DC 20036. Contact us for info if you are interested in donating stock.

As our thanks for your support, we continue to offer a wide range of books, videos and gift items to members donating over certain levels -- visit our donation page to see the full list, or choose from among our three newest feature items:

  • Cannabinomics: The Marijuana Policy Tipping Point, book by Dr. Christopher Glenn Fichtner, points the way to a brighter future beyond the current drug war. (See our review of Cannabinomics here.)
  • Emperor of Hemp, a re-released memorial tribute edition of the classic video, honors the movement pioneer Jack Herer whose efforts enabled much more to follow. (See our review of Emperor of Hemp here.)
  • My Medicine, by Irvin Rosenfeld, tells his story as one of now only four patients in the federal government's medical marijuana program, and chronicles the history of medical marijuana as it's unfolded in the US to its incredible place today.


Donate $15 or more for Emperor of Hemp, $35 or more for Cannabinomics or My Medicine, $45 for the video and either book, $60 for both books, or $75 or more to get all three.

We have made huge strides, and reform activists from the rank-and-file up through the leadership tell us what a difference our work makes for them. But we need your help to ensure that this time of change will bring needed change, for a disadvantaged, demonized and under-represented group in our society, the targets of the brutal War on Drugs. Please donate generously today, and together we will make things happen.

Thank you very much for working to change this country's drug policies and for continuing to be part of And thank you for lending your support to our efforts at this important hour. Your contribution has never been more important.

P.S. Every day that goes by, 4,000 people are arrested for drug offenses, the vast majority of them minor, and half a million nonviolent drug offenders languish yet another day in the staggering number of prisons and jails the government has very unwisely built. It's time to stop this senseless tragedy and shocking injustice. Please increase your commitment to ending the drug war by donating to today. Thank you!
