We're Here

Thank you for visiting our web site. Phil (writer of the Drug War Chronicle) newsletter is off this week, while he and his partner set up a new home. All of us have been busy adapting to the current crisis situation, and I was overseas recently at the annual UN Commission on Narcotic Drugs meeting, as part of our efforts on global drug policy and the human rights crisis in the Philippine drug war. That is why the site doesn't look as current as it usually does.

On my end, amidst all of this I've unfortunately lapsed for a few weeks on the email editions of the Chronicle. Time management with the very small staff we have now, while multiple programs break out, is a challenge too. That's why you haven't seen emails from us yet this month. Working this challenge out has been a process.

There will be an email edition of the Chronicle out later today or tomorrow morning. Most of it will be the content you've probably seen on our site already, due to Phil being on leave. But we will also be publishing information on COVID-19's impact on drug users and the related health services, and on the criminal justice system, including requests for you to take action this week. And Phil will be back this weekend or Monday.

I will also be posting my thoughts on advancing policy reform during a crisis. As some of you know, I've been doing this for awhile. While every crisis is different, there are lessons to be learned from the past.

More soon,

Dave
