For those concerned about the Voting Rights Act

Thought I’d share with you a post I made on Facebook.

DEA dog and pony show today

The DEA just can’t contain itself. I’ve gotten multiple press releases from them about a special press conference today, where they’re going to get to show off their latest big bust. Must be a doozy, because they’re milking it (and teasing it) for all the publicity they can get.

World Drug Report

The World Drug Report for 2013 was released this morning by the UNODC. This is actually a useful report in terms of all the international information it contains, but of course it is also a product of the UNODC, and so any commentary within tends to hew to the standard pro-drug-war rhetoric.

Open Thread

Getting ready to open a show in Chicago Saturday, which has kept me busy and on the road, and the NSA leaks story has been getting a lot of my attention, so I don’t have much today.

Kennedy and Sabet embrace racist policies… it’s for their own good

Patrick Kennedy and Kevin Sabet sink to a new low in their letter in the New York Times responding to the Times editorial about the racial disparity that exists nationwide in marijuana arrests, which is all out of proportion to how marijuana is used in the population.

Prohibition’s devastation is about more than just Marijuana

It certainly seems that a tipping point has been reached regarding marijuana and prohibition, although it’s way too early to relax as the opposition has a lot at stake in the game and will not give up easily.
