Drug War Chronicle 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?

A testimonial sent recently by one of the west coast's leading activists helps to illustrate how our steady reporting on drug policy from a reform perspective builds and empowers the movement:

"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."
- Mikki Norris, Publisher and Managing Editor of the West Coast Leaf www.westcoastleaf.com
 

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 by credit card or PayPal 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.

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!

Tax-Deductible Donations Support the Cause

Dear StoptheDrugWar.org supporter:


 
 

We are approaching a new year in a new time. Things are moving our way -- in a big way. But there are critical next steps to take; there is critical work to be done. As we approach December 31st, would you consider a generous tax-deductible donation to support our educational work in 2013? Or if you're not using tax-deductions this year, non-deductible donation to support our lobbying work?

As our thanks to supporting members, we are offering a range of books, videos, and our other gift items, new ones and older (discounted) ones still in stock. Some of our items are available with gifts as low as $15 -- the full list can be viewed in the drop-down menu on our donation page. (Important if you're considering a tax-deductible donation: Any gifts you select reduce the portion of your donation that's deductible, by the items' retail value.)

With marijuana legalization passing in two states, with growing international support for a real debate about prohibition, people are talking about drug policy like never before. And so two of our newest offers for donating members come from the academic world rather than activist reformer circles: Marijuana Legalization: What Everyone Needs to Know and Drugs, Insecurity and Failed States: The Problems of Prohibition.

This is also a time of continuing outrages in the government's drug war, including the federal campaign against medical marijuana. And so our third new offer is the DVD Lynching Charlie Lynch, telling the story of one of California's most respected and responsible medical marijuana providers, now facing time in federal prison. (Follow the three links above for Drug War Chronicle reviews of each of these works.)
 

 
 

Donate $35 or more to StoptheDrugWar.org, and you will be eligible for a complimentary copy of any one of these items. Donate $65 or more and you'll be eligible for any two. Donate $95 or more and you can receive all three. (As I mentioned, 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, as well as our older items.)

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 -- 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.

Volunteer to Pass Marijuana Legalization This Election

The news cycle is awash with polls and news about the close race for president. But the most important votes happening next month may be historic initiatives to legalize and regulate marijuana -- and these are also going to be close.

You can help these and other initiatives we're supporting, and I hope that between now and Election Day you'll be able to. First, we have partnered with FireDogLake and the "Just Say Now" campaign to do phonebanking in support of Colorado's Amendment 64 and Oregon's Measure 80. (Other initiatives may be added to the site too.) Visit http://fdl.platform.webstrong.com/dna/network/groups/ to open an account -- select StoptheDrugWar.org as your "group," if you're willing to help us in that way -- and make phone calls for legalization! There are two options for Colorado, by the way -- one of them general, the other for women to call other women voters in the state.

There are other state initiatives that need your support, including marijuana legalization in Washington, medical marijuana in Arkansas and Montana and Massachusetts, and an important initiative in California to reform the state's draconian "three-strikes" law. Please visit our Election 2012 Resource Page at http://stopthedrugwar.org/election2012 for links to the campaign web sites where you can find volunteer information; the audio recording of our 9/27/12 teleconference with representatives of the legalization initiatives; and a link to our full election coverage archive page, where you can find feature stories we've published in Drug War Chronicle on almost all of these initiatives, Phil's weekly "Initiative Watch" feature, and more.

Please donate to help StoptheDrugWar.org to continue to grow and support the movement, to continue the press for legalization, and to prepare for the next stage after one or more of these measures passes in November. For donations of $35 or more, you can receive one of the two new books or the video that we're offering --  -- donate $95 or more for all three -- click here for all the details.

Thank you for standing with drug policy reform at this amazing and critical time. I believe that something big will happen this November -- with your help.
