Donald MacPherson's new blog

Donald MacPherson's has launched a new blog. I've added it to our blog roll on the right hand side of this page. For those who aren't aware of his work, Donald was the Drug Policy Coordinator for the City of Vancouver for twelve years. He is the author of the "Four Pillars Strategy," an approach that emphasizes prevention, treatment, enforcement and harm reduction. This was groundbreaking back in 2001.

It looks like he'll be posting sporadically, mostly on Canadian topics, although there are tidbits that will appeal to drug policy reformers around the world. I particularly like this quotation he posted on April 24th:“
Every truth passes through three stages. First, it is ridiculed. Second, it is violently opposed. Third, it is accepted as being self-evident.” Arthur Schopenhauer, German Philosopher, 1788-1860

  1. MacPherson's blog will be a terrific asset. If I may make a suggestion, perhaps copssaylegalize could notify its readers whenever MacPherson makes a new post. And of course, I would be interested to know what bloggers here have to say about what MacPherson writes!
