War on Drugs
criminallawyerphiladelphia.com | Mar 24th 2009
There are many groups working toward changing our unfair drug laws and the way our government handles the War on Drugs.
There are a number of good organizations out there working to end the draconian penalties of the drug war and the chipping away of our constitutional rights that has resulted. I am a member of the Drug Policy Alliance (www.drugpolicy.org), which is an excellent national organization working to end the war on drugs. Their mission is to promote “new drug policies based on science, compassion, health and human rights and a just society in which the fears, prejudices and punitive prohibitions of today are no more.” You can help by making a charitable donation and joining the group.
Another great organization is Families Against Mandatory Minimums (www.famm.org). They are a national voice for fair sentencing policies, dedicated to educating the public and our elected officials about the dramatic injustices that happen in drug courts every day. First time non-violent offenders are routinely sent to state or federal prison for many years, when few (including the judges) think it morally defensible. Just like the Drug Police Alliance, Families Against Mandatory Minimums is a non-profit, charitable organization.
Check out their websites to make charitable donations or join as members. These folks do important work and can use all of our support.
