on Drug Speeches fresh off the Press
The war on drugs is happening in our own
cities, in our own streets. The war on drugs in effecting Americans:
our right to vote, our right to freedom, and our right to due process,
especially in the case of search and seizure. Before we cut up the
text into bite-size morsels, we want to give you a sneak preview!
A Letter from Arianna
If you listen, you can hear the rustle of
a movement coming to life in America -- a movement that will dramatically
alter the conduct of the two major parties and bring about a new politics.
This movement is about you, your neighbors, your friends and all those
who have been denied a seat at the table of American politics. And make
no mistake; the price we pay for our absence is high.

The Need For Drug
Policy Reform: A Response To The Failed War On Drugs
We believe that our current drug policies are doing
more harm than good. We, and our children, deserve better. For decades
federal, state and local governments have enacted and enforced drug control
laws that focus largely on criminalization and punishment. Every
year these laws become more punitive and more costly. Every day
politicians endorse harsher drug war strategies.
By the Government's own standards, the Drug
War has failed.
War's Unequal Justice
Throughout the 20th century, which saw more than its share
of inhumanity, the most common excuse about why such things were allowed
to happen was ``We didn't know.'' Well, after the report that Human Rights
Watch released Thursday (June 8), we will no longer be able to use ignorance
to shield us from the reality of the racial injustice being perpetrated
every day in America in the name of the drug war -- completely ignored
by national political leaders and barely acknowledged by the media.
"So you want to legalize drugs, right?" That's the first
question I'm typically asked when I start talking about drug policy reform.
My short answer is, marijuana, maybe. But I'm not suggesting we make heroin,
cocaine or methamphetamine available the way we do alcohol and cigarettes.
What am I recommending?
