Drug War Chronicle needs your support!
Dear friend of drug policy reform,

StoptheDrugWar.org needs your support more than ever before to continue our work of getting the word out online for the drug policy reform movement, building the movement, and providing this crucial informational tool that reformers around the world use in their work every day. I ask your support at this time with the most generous donation you can afford to enable this newsletter to continue.

In recent weeks we've announced our latest offer for members donating $50 or more, author-signed copies of three important new books. Phil has now completed reviews of all three of these works, most recently NYT bestselling author Doug Fine's -- Too High to Fail: Cannabis and the New Green Economic Revolution, as well as Marc Mauer and Sabrina Jones's Race to Incarcerate: A Graphic Retelling and Carl Hart's High Price: A Neuroscientist's Journey of Self-Discovery That Challenges Everything You Know About Drugs and Society.

To donate, and to order any of these or other items we offer, please use our online donation form at http://stopthedrugwar.org/donate, or scroll down for info on donating by mail. We are asking donations of $50 or more for a signed copy of any one or these books, $95 or more for signed copies of any two, or $135 or more for signed copies of all three. (If more than 25 people order the books by the time you place your order, we will ask the authors if they're willing to sign more. If that can't be worked out, we'll contact you and offer to make different arrangements, whether for a full or partial refund or to send different items.)

Now, $50 is a little more than we've asked for such items in the past, and of course they can be ordered online or purchased in a bookstore for less. Things have changed in the drug reform funding scene, making our organization more dependent on membership to continue our programs -- I hope you'll choose to support us at this time. Note that we continue to offer a range of books, videos, and StoptheDrugWar.org gift items with donations of as little as $7 -- visit our donation form to see the full list.

Also note that donations to StoptheDrugWar.org can be tax-deductible, supporting our educational work, or non-deductible, supporting our lobbying work. (Note that selecting any gift items reduces the amount of your donation that is deductible -- which with a smaller gift amount can be most of it.) Donations can be made by credit card or PayPal at http://stopthedrugwar.org/donate, or sent by mail to P.O. Box 18402, Washington, DC 20036. If you are donating by check, please make it payable to DRCNet Foundation (if tax-deductible) or Drug Reform Coordination Network (if not deductible). If you wish to donate stock, the information to give your brokerage is Ameritrade, (800) 669-3900), DTC#0188, and account number 781926492 for tax-deductible gifts or 864663500 for non-deductible gifts -- please make sure to contact us if donating in this way.

Thank you for standing with us to stop the drug war's cruelties and meet the opportunity this time offers to make a brighter future. As recent events show, time and the truth are on our side!

Looking for the easiest way to join the anti-drug war movement? You've found it!


The word that came down from DC, posing as the FDA, this past week is by far one of the most apalling acts since the white man killed 80% of the Indians to take what they wanted. I AM a LEGIT PAIN PATIENT, and know many many others. As I spoke to my godfather before this latest onslaught of the weak in America I learned why.


This is NOT a new plan, it was in the process of being prepared to drop full throttle on the U.S. citizens no less than 15 years ago. Its origin, Switzerland. The idea and the plan, both then and now, to WEED out the weak, and increase the strong. Hence, the unconstitutional health care law "LAWLESS". To ALL citizens who now are SSI benefits, who are dependent upon welfare for medication aid and lastly, the MOST disgusting of all...The VETERANS! We however will leave our borders un-secure, for that is a way for the PoLiTaCowS to front their waste of money. Their lie: We must secure our borders, stop the illegal aliens, STOP the drug cartels....when in fact, if you want to really see...go look at the shack gram pretend fences in TX more than Cali.


Now at long last, the DC Mob, has garnered all the ppl in place, to destroy the weakest and oldest in our nation. Cancer victims who suffer severe pain...youve had a good life, so long. You can however take lethal injections of pain meds to end it all....same for ALL ppl in pain...MS, Parks, paraplegics, quads, ect....


The ONLY WAY TO STOP this insanity, is to band ALL patients and their families TOGETHER, and march on a petition movement, the likes of which that ugly place on earth called DC, has NEVER seen.




MAJOR web pages that give TRUE info, into this that we will be ready, to lawyer up PHAT when we all go to the assembly, and force feed this bullshit back down into Washingtons throat, and remove the power that the FDA holds. They who take untested medications, to 3rd world countrys, and pay the poorest people, $10-15 a MONTH to try meds, MOST of which do not work, but then you have an entire new door opened: THE PPL DIE in those countries, but it is stated as the GOOD for America. But then what of us? The Americans, is our medications safe? Who are these 90 day med companies REALLY working for? Perhaps, they save the Americans some money, but they do not worry of their lives.




REALLY get involved, we ALL know ppl, that are suffering, in pain, for WHATEVER reason, light UP the web, the news outlets, ALL of them, to let EVERY ONE IN PAIN, know, and get involved, to SIGN UP, to LIGHT UP, DC with exactly what they have stepped in this TIME.




This is a matter being rushed through as a law, faster than a Texan drills for oil...WE CANNOT WAIT!










It has been said, a 3 cord braid, is not easily broken....so imagine, what a MILLION CORD BRAID ON BRAID ON BRAID COULD DO






Professional, mannerly, in such a way, that this nation can CLEARLY SEE, pain victims, ALL OF US, are not the problem, we are NOT the junkies, we ARE THE VICTIMS, THE SEDATE, , ,and THE DEAD.


I AM READY, JOIN MY HAND< AS I TAKE OTHERS, and we WILL circle this nation with TRUTHS like it has never SEEN before
