Crack down on organized crime and save addicts — Legalize Hard Drugs

Well I'm here in Calgary airport waiting for a connecting flight to Victoria. Ottawa was great although the jet lag is hitting me hard right now. Testifying in front of the Senate committee was an amazing experience but I will write about it later as I'm still digesting the whole thing.

This Magazine is a small but influential magazine published in Canada since 1966. Their theme this month is "legalize everything," and Katie Addleman has a lengthy article about drug policy in the issue. It includes interviews with retired judge Jerry Paradis, LEAP executive director Jack Cole as well as myself. The piece is titled, "Crack down on organized crime and save addicts — Legalize Hard Drugs."

Also, we have a new member in the LEAP speakers bureau: William (Bill) Cooke. He spent four years as a prosecutor with State's [Maryland] Attorney's Office for Baltimore City. (I can't even imagine how busy he must have been.) Bill has agreed to become a co-author on the blog and I'm looking forward to reading his posts.
