Things must be really dreary at the Coalition for a Drug Free California (CDFC), what with no organization, no funding, and little or no legal influence.

Maybe the CDFC should contact the Women’s Christian Temperance Union (WCTU).  Perhaps the ladies at WCTU can provide some counseling to the CDFC staff on how to cope with being total losers.
