CHANGING THE SYSTEM
Taking the First Step
We believe that the establishment of a National Commission On Marijuana and Drug Abuse is a reasonable first step in the attempt to find better policies.
We can't know what such a commission will report, but we have no doubt that the American people can only be better off for being given exposure to more reliable information and expert recommendations.
If you agree, please sign the Petition.
Other Elements of Change
Change in America normally occurs in a series of incremental steps surrounded by political debate. The drug war operates to thwart that debate and is in opposition to even the mildest forms of progress as typified by resistance to the medical use of marijuana.
A basic element of change is to recognize the need. In many respects, this already exists; a majority of Americans are generally dissatisfied with the results of the drug war and a majority supports some changes now.
