• The Global Commission on Drug Policy (Kofi Annan, the former presidents of Colombia, Mexico, and Brazil, Richard Branson of Virgin, etc.) made worldwide news
by calling for an end to the War on Drugs.
• June 17 was the 40th anniversary
of President Richard Nixon declaring War On Drugs. This generated yet another wave of coverage denouncing the Drug War.
• On June 22, Reps. Barney Frank and Ron Paul introduced federal legislation
to end marijuana prohibition.
Described by Rolling Stone magazine as “the point man” for drug policy reform efforts, Ethan Nadelmann is a prominent proponent of legalization.
