Donate Today for a Brighter Future Beyond Prohibition

Submitted by David Borden on (Issue #660)

What a year it's been!

If you've been reading Drug War Chronicle or our Speakeasy blog, you know how encouraged we are by California's Prop 19 marijuana legalization initiative -- the positive media coverage ... the new, mainstream allies it brought in to the movement ... the relative closeness of the vote in a year that favored conservative election turnout.

Despite the initiative not passing this time, we believe that time is on our side.

Our time will be here soon.

Adding to our excitement is the phenomenal success that our newly-redesigned web site has experienced in its first few months. The improved site, our more up-to-the-minute publishing, and the excitement of Prop 19, all combined to bring more than half a million people to during the weeks leading up to the election.

We are taking the anti-prohibitionist message to more people than ever.

Would you please consider sending a donation to help us keep the message going?

We are pleased to offer three new membership premium gifts, reflecting our optimism for the future:

  1. Cannabinomics: The Marijuana Policy Tipping Point, book by Dr. Christopher Glenn Fichtner, points the way to a brighter future beyond the current drug war.
  2. 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.
  3. My Medicine, by Irv 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.

Resources are tight in the drug policy reform movement right now, despite the excitement of the election. At we have therefore focused our efforts on the work that we're the best at -- high-quality, journalistic level, original publishing about the drug war; and using our web site and email list to grow and support the entire drug reform movement -- Prop 19, sentencing reform, medical marijuana in the many states, everything.

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 because the economy and funding situation is what it is, we need your help as this special year draws to a close -- please make a generous donation supporting today.
