Your Support Makes the Difference

Dear friend,

StoptheDrugWar.org needs your help to continue our programs -- like this newsletter, Drug War Chronicle -- during this most important time in the cause there has ever been. Click here for some examples of how activists around the world rely on Drug War Chronicle in their work.

As our thanks for your support, we continue our full set of membership offers, some of them available with donations of $15 or greater to our organization. We also continue to offer, with donations of $35 or more, "Marijuana Legalization: What Everyone Needs to Know," authors of which were recently hired to consult with the state of Washington on implementing legalization there.

 

The newest item is a pair of reports that highlight the US and international legal landscapes as legalization becomes a mainstream issue. (We'll send you both for the $15.) Though the text of each report can be found online, for $15 or more you can hold the nice printed copies -- the history in the making -- in your hands. They are:

  • "On the Limits of Federal Supremacy: When States Relax (or Abandon) Marijuana Bans," a Cato Institute Policy Analysis by Vanderbilt law professor Robert Mikos, explores the limits in federal law and resources for enforcing marijuana prohibition in states that have legalized.
  • "Governing the Global Drug Wars," a special report by London School of Economics IDEAS, details the history of the global prohibition regime; the obstacles it poses to nations seeking to explore legalization and other reforms, and efforts by nations and agencies to transform the system into one respecting public health and human rights.

We are also pleased to continue offering the following items (while supplies last), now also with donations of $15 or more:

  • Emperor of Hemp DVD, about the life and work of Jack Herer (memorial tribute edition)
  • StoptheDrugWar.org strobe light
  • StoptheDrugWar.org stamp and ink pad
  • StoptheDrugWar.org mouse pad

Though we offer many items for $15, I hope you will consider making a larger donation if you are able, or supplementing your initial gift with a monthly one. If the gifts are not important to you, I hope you'll consider sending a donation that's just for our work.

Donations 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.) They can be made online on our web site by credit card or PayPal, 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!

What Everyone Needs to Know About Washington State's Marijuana Legalization Consultants

Dear friends,

 
 

Last year we began to offer the book "Marijuana Legalization: What Everyone Needs to Know" as an option for members donating $35 or more. This week it was announced that a policy firm headed by one of the authors of the book, Prof. Mark Kleiman, had won Washington State's contract to do analysis related to the implementation of I-502, and that the book's other authors would be part of that team. It was a big news item this week, on CNN and other outlets, and I blogged about it here and here. The discussion has included concerns reformers have raised about some of Kleiman's past statements about state legalization, and Kleiman's response to that.

We continue to offer this book, as well as the other items we offered it together with: the book Drugs, Insecurity and Failed States: The Problems of Prohibition and the DVD Lynching Charlie Lynch. (Follow the links above for Drug War Chronicle reviews of each of these works.) I've found Kleiman et al's book to be pretty valuable, even while disagreeing with some things, and it certainly will offer some clues as to where they might go with their recommendations to the state. When those recommendations come out, we'll undoubtedly have some things to say -- reading the book would be a great way to prepare.

 
 

Donate $35 or more to StoptheDrugWar.org and you will be eligible for a complimentary copy of "Marijuana Legalization: What Everyone Needs to Know" or one of the other items. Donate $65 or more and you'll be eligible for any two. Donate $95 or more and you can receive all three. Other offers we've announced continue to be available too.

(Each of these items, and each combination along with other available items, can be found in the "membership premiums" section of our online donation form, under the indicated minimum total. Many older items are also still available, as you'll see on the form, some for as little as $15.)

At a time like this -- when people are talking about drug policy like never before -- the movement's internet strategy is also more important than ever before. So please support our work with a generous donation by credit card or PayPal today. You can also donate by mail or give stocks -- info below.

Lastly, please note that even with a nonprofit, bulk discount, we spend a significant amount to purchase these items and send them to you -- if you can afford to donate more than the minimum, or to supplement your donation with a continuing monthly contribution, I hope you'll consider doing so. If gift items are not important to you, I hope you'll consider sending a donation that's entirely for our work.

 
 

Donations to our organization can be made online at http://stopthedrugwar.org/donate, or they can be mailed to: DRCNet Foundation (tax-deductible), P.O. Box 18402, Washington, DC 20036; or Drug Reform Coordination Network (non-deductible for lobbying), same address. (Note that selecting gift items will reduce the amount of your donation that is tax-deductible, by the items' retail value.)

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 supporting the Drug War Chronicle newsletter and StoptheDrugWar.org's work engaging the debate at this pivotal time in drug policy reform.

StoptheDrugWar.org Needs Your Support

  
 

Dear reader,

 
 

I am writing to ask your support as we head into the new year. The nation's continuing economic challenges present nonprofits with continuing challenges, even in drug policy reform despite the excitement of last month's victories. StoptheDrugWar.org, and the widely read, widely put to use Drug War Chronicle newsletter, need your help to continue in strength into 2013. Would you visit our web site today to make a generous donation to our work and the cause?

Of course publishing information is not all that we do here. We also play important roles in generating grassroots support for legislation, recruiting organizations onto legislative sign-on letters to Congress organized by DC-based criminal justice reform coalitions, speaking with the media and more. This fall we held our first member teleconference, featuring representatives of the three legalization initiatives. More of these events will be held in the new year, and other efforts are in the works to address the special needs of this time -- countering the naysaying and misinformation that opponents of marijuana legalization have already begun to spread, and highlighting and bolstering the growing international debate on drug prohibition as a whole.

But I am not exaggerating when I say that it can't continue to happen without your help. So I hope you'll make a generous donation -- tax-deductible supporting our educational work, or non-deductible for lobbying -- online at our web site by credit card or PayPal today.
(Donations can also be made by mail, info below, and we can also accept donations of stock.)

I've mentioned in recent emails that we offer a number of books, videos and other items to our donating members. Some of the older items are available with gifts of as little as $15. The most recent books or videos come with donations of $35 or more. (Note that selecting gifts will reduce the amount of your donation that is tax-deductible.) Of course I hope you will consider donating more than the minimum if you are able, or supplementing your donation with a continuing monthly gift. Or if the gifts are not important to you, I hope you'll consider sending a donation that's just for our work. But we'll be pleased to send you any of our currently in stock items at you request.

At a time like this -- when people are talking about drug policy like never before -- the movement and our part in it are also more important than ever before. So please support our work with a generous donation today. Donations to our organization can be made online at http://stopthedrugwar.org/donate, or they can be mailed to: DRCNet Foundation (tax-deductible), P.O. Box 18402, Washington, DC 20036; or Drug Reform Coordination Network (non-deductible for lobbying), same address.

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 -- make sure to contact us if donating in this way.

How People Are Using Drug War Chronicle

A few of the testimonials we received this year -- and reasons to support our work with a donation!

https://stopthedrugwar.org/files/stopsign-200px.jpg
Drug War Chronicle is one of the first resources I suggest to new students getting involved in the drug policy reform movement. There's nothing else out there that covers a wider variety of drug war issues each week. SSDP loves Drug War Chronicle, keep up the great work!
-Stacia Cosner, Associate Director, Students for Sensible Drug Policy

As part of a small staff without any single staff member devoted to research and policy, the Drug War Chronicle is one of the most useful resources I have to stay on top of important developments across the country. I direct a nationwide speakers bureau, and whenever I receive a request from a state I'm not familiar with, one of the first things I do is search my Drug War Chronicle email folder to get a clear summary of the latest updates from that state. Then I am able to confidently bring the speaker up-to-date and help him/her prepare to do a talk that is not only persuasive and credible, but also informed on the current local context, thanks to the DWC. If I didn't have the DWC I'd have to do endless online research and still never be quite sure if what I have is up-to-date. We also encourage all of our speakers to subscribe to stay on top of the most important updates on a weekly basis.-Shaleen Title, Speakers Bureau Director, Law Enforcement Against Prohibition

Drug War Chronicle has, for years, provided a vital and unparalleled source of rational, fact based analysis on the US Drug War for readers in the UK and Europe. Congratulations to the team are fully deserved; when the Drug war ends, the role of the Chronicle in its downfall will not be forgotten.
- Steve Rolles, Senior Policy Analyst, Transform Drug Policy Foundation

On behalf of California NORML, I strongly recommend the Drug War Chronicle. DWC consistently provides the most comprehensive, reliable, in-depth coverage of drug issues for the reform community. When Phil Smith calls me, I know that he will accurately report what I have said. DWC is a valuable resource, and I often consult its archives for background research on issues of interest.
- Dale Gieringer, Director, California NORML

Oaksterdam University has long enjoyed sharing the information compiled by Drug War Chronicle with students of the History of Cannabis and Marijuana Prohibition. DWT excerpts are informative and helpful to our Legal, Politics & History classes, as well as Civics, Dispensary Management and Operations, and Advocacy courses. One of the most important services we provide is the ability to bridge to sources of good information, and I have long considered you one of our vital resources. It is simply one of the most comprehensive sources I direct my students towards. Your website and communications are a cornerstone of our Political Science department, and provide important lessons for anyone involved with Cannabusiness or drug policy reform.
- Dale Sky Jones, Executive Chancellor, Oaksterdam University

The West Coast Leaf always looks to the Drug War Chronicle to help us determine the most important stories for our newspaper. Its in-depth coverage is top-notch, providing a well-rounded perspective on the news, along with quotes from drug policy's doers and shakers. At times, we use the stories as well (with all due credit) so the impact of the Chronicle is amplified in print edition. It's a vital resource in activating the masses with relevant information needed to make reform happen.
