For nothing is more destructive of respect for the government and the law of the land than passing laws which cannot be enforced. It is an open secret that the dangerous increase of crime in this country is closely connected with this" Albert Einstein.
Founded on March 16, 2002, LEAP is made up of current and former members of the law enforcement and criminal justice communities who are speaking out about the failures of our existing drug policies. Those policies have failed, and continue to fail, to effectively address the problems of drug abuse, especially the problems of juvenile drug use, the problems of addiction, and the problems of crime caused by the existence of a criminal black market in drugs. Although those who speak publicly for LEAP are people from the law enforcement and criminal justice communities, a large number of our supporting members do not have such experience. You don't have to have law enforcement experience to join us. By continuing to fight the so-called "War on Drugs", the US government has worsened these problems of society instead of alleviating them. A system of regulation and control of these substances (by the government, replacing the current system of control by the black market) would be a less harmful, less costly, more ethical and more effective public policy. Please consider joining us and helping us to achieve our goals: 1) to educate the public, the media and policy makers about the failure of current policies, and 2) to restore the public's respect for police, whichrespect has been greatly diminished by law enforcement's involvement in enforcing drug prohibition.

Can you imagine a cultural reintegration of the use of psychedelics and the states of mind they engender?
Stop the Drug War (DRCNet) calls for an end to drug prohibition (e.g. some form of legalization), and its replacement with some sensible framework in which drugs can be regulated and controlled instead. Founded in 1993 by executive director David Borden, DRCNet has from the beginning called unambiguously for an end to prohibition; we are the largest "full-purpose" national membership organization with a wide range of programs to hold that position.

Therapeutic Help from Cannabis for Multiple Sclerosis. THC4MS is a Medi-weed Co-operative based in the UK that promotes the use of cannabis chocolate bars free of charge for Multiple Sclerosis sufferers. All that is required to be accepted is a Doctors note confirming diagnosis of MS. THC4MS was originally founded in 1993 as a self help group working along side groups such as Alliance for Cannabis Therapeutics (ACT) run by our good friend Clare Hodges a fellow MS sufferer following a chance meeting of several MS sufferers who appeared on The Kilroy show.
THC4MS worked as a first point of contact for MS sufferers who wished to use cannabis as a medicine, but who had no access to it. Time after time the same two questions were being asked, Where can I buy some cannabis? and I have some cannabis in a pot in my cupboard that so and so gave me, but I do not know what to do with it? Thc4ms through networking with other Medi-weed co-ops were able to direct the MS sufferer to the Medi-weed co-op most suited to the MS patients needs.
During this time THC4MS became aware of the work of Biz Ivol of Orkney also an MS sufferer. Biz was producing cannabis chocolate bars for her friend Bill Reeves an MS sufferer who lives on the next island who wished to use cannabis as a medicine, but did not want to smoke. Thc4ms at this time was producing herbal cannabis and giving it away to a small group of MS sufferers in emergency situations only ie:-their normal route of supply had exhausted and began to send herbal cannabis to Biz so she could produce the cannabis chocolate bars. Thc4ms also started making small amounts of Canna-choc for MS sufferers who were worried about smoking and distributed it free of charge.
My name is Ben Leer, and I work at the Tardive Dyskinesia Center (tardivedyskinesia.com). I was searching through a number of disease treatment sites when I came across your website, and was very impressed by the information you have listed. We provide educational information on tardive dyskinesia, a movement disorder caused by the medication Reglan. Currently scientific evidence has indicated that marijuana (cannabis) has great potential to help patients manage symptoms.
Tardive Dyskinesia (TD) is a result of damage to the bodily systems that process dopamine, and is typically caused by exposure to certain neurological medications - including Reglan. The symptoms of TD, which are irreversible and incurable, mimic those of Parkinson’s disease. Tardive Dyskinesia victims suffer from involuntary, repetitive movements which often continue after the drug is no longer used. some patients do report that their use of marijuana relieves their symptoms. We feature the most up-to-date information on TD, its causes and all known treatment options. Additionally, we distribute free support books and informational packets to our users.
The best treatment is prevention; right now we are in the midst of a public outreach, attempting to educate families on the dangers of Reglan. Some studies have shown cannabis to be useful in helping patients manage the symptoms of tardive dyskinesia. I noticed you already have some other cannabis resources listed on your resources page at goldenseed.co.uk/links.html and thought you might be willing to include our organization as well. I'm available by e-mail at bleer(@)tardivedyskinesia.com. With your help, we can educate the public about the dangers of Reglan. Thanks again!

Upon entering the new millennium, our nation marked the end of the most punishing decade in our people's history. More people began a prison or a jail term in the United States during the '90s than any other decade on record. There are now over two million incarcerated in the country often called "The Land of the Free." It is no secret that punitive drug laws fuel this terrible rush to imprisonment. By studying drug law convictions over the past twenty years, researchers have produced alarming figures. The number of people sent to jail or prison for drug law violations increased more than tenfold. One in four prisoners in the United States is serving time for a drug law violation. In the federal system, these people make up 55% of the prison population. Prison punishment increased dramatically with laws in the mid 1980's -- laws that created Mandatory Minimum sentencing, the US Sentencing Guidelines, and abolished parole. Today the Sentencing Guidelines are advisory, but those sentenced before 2004 are unlikely to be granted any retroactive relief.
Working to Reform the Marijuana Laws.NORML's mission is to move public opinion sufficiently to achieve the repeal of marijuana prohibition so that the responsible use of cannabis by adults is no longer subject to penalty. Adopted by the NORML Board of Directors, February 27, 1999
Dean Friedman is a fortysomething American singer and songwriter (and an amazing inventor, too) who first rose to fame in the 1970s. With a huge catalogue of wonderful songs in a very unique storytelling mode, Friedman's work has become popular in the USA and Britain, and the Internet has broadened his fan base to include listeners in Taiwan as well, Potty pop performer Dean Friedman has ditched plans to give away cannabis seeds to his fans at The Stables after facing a joint ban by the venue and local police.
Self-confessed pot smoker Friedman was booked to play at the Wavendon concert theatre, founded by John Dankworth and Cleo Laine this month as part of his 25th anniversary UK tour.
But then it was revealed that not only is the American hippy singer-songwriter sponsored by a firm that sells cannabis seeds but he promised to give away dozens of them to the first ten people to buy his new CD at the concert.
He insisted the transaction was perfectly legal... "as long as it doesn't rain and the seeds don't get wet!"
"Everything we are doing is perfectly legal. If it rains though and the seeds start to germinate...uh, we may have a problem," he told the Tuesday Citizen last week.
Friedman, whose new album includes a song called 'Doint, Doint. It's Just a Little Joint", is billed by The Stables for the show on October 21, as "one of today's pre-eminent songwriters and recording artists".
But yesterday (Monday) Stables chief executive Monica Ferguson said following discussions Friedman had agreed to not to distribute free cannabis seeds at the concert.
"We would like to reinforce that, as a music education charity, The Stables does not condone the promotion of illegal substances in any way," she said.
Mr Friedman had earlier told the Citizen: "I have been mistakenly perceived as 'Mr Middle of the Road' for quite a while."
"Now I feel I will finally be acknowledged as the shiftless, irresponsible, pot-smoking, sex-crazed, Commie-radical lunatic I actually am," he said.
At first the Stables staff were so shocked when they heard of the proposed pot offer they were convinced it was a joke.
"This has to be a wind-up," said a spokesman.
But Fiona Duff of Friedman's PR company Duff Promotions confirmed: "It's true. It is not illegal as long as the seeds do not germinate. It's a free country people can do what they want with them."
Milton Keynes Police said, "It is illegal to cultivate cannabis. This sort of thing sends out the wrong message.
"We would urge people to stay away from drugs,' said a spokesman.
I suggest that "shiftless" in the above extract contains an extra letter;
Bizarely, there is also another webiste, miltonkeynestoday.com so there must be some intense Press rivalry in the Land of Roundabouts and the Concrete Cows. The other sponsor is goldenseed.co.uk.
As Dean says on his website
"I'm also pleased to introduce a brand new tour sponsor, the UK-based seed company, goldenseed.co.uk. If you just heard a faint 'gasp' that might have been my mom reading this message. I'll do my best to explain, but please note, goldenseed.co.uk is a completely legitimate and perfectly legal website, based in the UK, that offers a fine selection of choice cannabis seeds for the enlightened gardener. If you haven't had the chance to hear it yet, one of the featured tracks on my new album is a playful, yet serious, tune entitled, 'Doint, Doint' It's Just a Little Joint'. It's a funny and also quite factual ditty that celebrates and makes a reasoned argument for the decriminalization of a much maligned and poorly misunderstood natural herb. The bottom line, as stated plainly in the final chorus is that it's 'no more dangerous than alcohol'. And as such, I don't espouse it being made available to minors and believe it should be subject to the same restrictions that substances such as alcohol and tobacco are currently subject to. Unfortunately, despite a growing worldwide trend, in modern democratic societies, towards decriminalization, even the possession of seeds in the United States is considered a criminal offense and subject to federal prosecution (even in a state like California which has passed some of America's most liberal cannabis laws).

"A compendium of facts that fly in the face of accepted wisdom." David F. Duncan, Clinical Associate Professor, Brown University Medical School. Common Sense for Drug Policy is a nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization dedicated to reforming drug policy and expanding harm reduction. CSDP disseminates factual information and comments on existing laws, policies and practices. CSDP provides advice and assistance to individuals and organizations and facilitates coalition building. CSDP supports syringe exchanges, the expansion of Methadone and Buprenorphine availability and other public health measures to reduce harm to users and restrict the spread of HIV / AIDS and Hepatitis C. CSDP advocates the regulation and control of marijuana in a manner similar to alcohol and subject to local option. CSDP favors decriminalizing the use of hard drugs and providing them only through prescription. CSDP also advocates clear federal guidelines for the practice of pain management so that physicians need not fear unwarranted law enforcement scrutiny of medical practices.
Students for Sensible Drug Policy (SSDP) is a grassroots movement of students who know firsthand that the War on Drugs causes great harm to individuals and to society. Mission Statement. Students for Sensible Drug Policy is an international grassroots network of students who are concerned about the impact drug abuse has on our communities, but who also know that the War on Drugs is failing our generation and our society. SSDP mobilizes and empowers young people to participate in the political process, pushing for sensible policies to achieve a safer and more just future, while fighting back against counterproductive Drug War policies, particularly those that directly harm students and youth. Students for Sensible Drug Policy neither encourages nor condemns drug use. Rather, we seek to reduce the harms caused by drug abuse and drug policies. As young people, we strive toward a just and compassionate society where drug abuse is treated as a health issue instead of a criminal justice issue.We recognize that the very real harms of drug abuse are not adequately addressed by current policies and we advocate measures that would effectively help those who develop drug problems. Yet, we also believe that individuals must ultimately be allowed to make decisions for themselves as long as their actions do not infringe upon anyone else’s freedoms or safety. Because the War on Drugs has historically been justified as necessary to protect youth, it is our responsibility as young people to stop this harmful war from being waged in our names any longer. As scholars, we seek solutions to society's drug problems through focused research, honest dialogue, and informed debate, instead of unquestioned extremism, punishment, and propaganda.

The Legalise Cannabis Alliance
.The Legalise Cannabis Alliance (LCA) was formed to make the legalisation of cannabis a major issue in British politics.
In 1992, a group of Norwich people had become dissatisfied with the legalise cannabis campaign at the time and felt that more action was needed. At the inspiration of Jack Girling of Norwich and following a particularly large local police operation with the incarceration of several people without bail on conspiracy charges, a meeting was held and the decision made to form the CLCIA (Campaign to Legalise Cannabis International Association). The aim was to campaign for the legalisation of cannabis throughout the world and to secure the release of all "cannabis prisoners" - a big task for them since they lacked both financial resources and experience. The tactic of the CLCIA was to run both political and educational programmes. The CLCIA would try to field candidates in elections in order to encourage a political debate.
The CLCIA was founded by these Norwich people: Jack Girling, Tina Smith, Cathy Dugdale, Alun Buffry, John Davies, Bob Wilton, Ingrid Waters, Martin Wyatt, John Adam, Charlie Bristow and Alan H Smith. Howard Marks was an honorary founding member (without his knowledge as he was still in prison in the US after being kidnapped by the DEA
Families Against Mandatory Minimums
Working for fair and proportionate sentencing laws
Mandatory minimum sentencing laws require harsh, automatic prison terms for those convicted of certain crimes, most often drug offenses. Congress enacted mandatory minimums in 1986 and toughened them in 1988 to apply to drug conspiracies and certain gun offenses. The sentence is determined solely by the weight and type of drug, or the presence of a firearm during a felony offense Mandatory minimum sentencing laws require harsh, automatic prison terms for those convicted of certain crimes, most often drug offenses. Congress enacted mandatory minimums in 1986 and toughened them in 1988 to apply to drug conspiracies and certain gun offenses. The sentence is determined solely by the weight and type of drug, or the presence of a firearm during a felony offense.
Congress enacted mandatory minimum sentencing laws to catch drug kingpins and deter drug sales and use. But the laws undermine the American tradition of justice by preventing judges from fitting the punishment to the individual's role in the offense. Because of mandatory sentencing laws, the population of federal prisons has soared and they are filled with low-level, nonviolent drug law violators not the kingpins mandatory sentences intended to apprehend. .
The Ohio Patient Network is a 501(c)(3) non-profit coalition of patients, caregivers, activists and medical professionals who support the compassionate use of cannabis for various medicinal purposes. Our mission is to coordinate information between patients, medical professionals, and attorneys, as well as to educate the public and keep the interested current with the movement`s news. The Ohio Patient Network (OPN) announces its campaign to highlight the pain and suffering endured by medicinal cannabis (marijuana) patients, not only from their disabilities and illnesses, but also at the hands of the state and federal governments. Throughout this campaign, OPN will introduce to the media and public other personal stories and letters composed by medicinal cannabis patients in Ohio. Their stories are below.
Pacific Drug Policy Initiative
A rational alternative to war on drugs which peacefully reconciles the objectives of prohibition and decriminalization. The mission of the Pacific Drug Policy Initiative is to prepare the way for creation of a future organization, tentatively named the Pacific Drug Policy Institute. The Institute is intended to be a nonprofit corporation. Its role will be to improve the quality of information available to the media, the general public, and the institutions of public policy formation through a program of social science research and education relating to drug/crime epidemic, its social dynamics and effects, and the means and measure available for the epidemic's control. The Institute will pursue its mission by expediting the cooperation of researchers, scholars and practitioners in developing a new interdisciplinary field of drug/crime studies. Specifically, the Institute is to:
1. Conduct and fund research on a broad range of topics relating to drug/crime epidemic and its control,
2. Publish monograms on research findings,
3. Publish a Journal of Drug/Crime Studies,
4. Conduct conferences and seminars,
Manage the dissemination of the Institute's social science information product.
UK Cannabis Internet Activists
Chronicling the progress of the Legalise Cannabis Campaign: UKCIA accepts that for some people there is a complicated connection between cannabis use and mental health. Arriving at a greater understanding of this and promoting policies designed to protect "at risk" people are amongst of our greatest goals. We take this issue very seriously and we've have done our best to highlight it for the past four years precisely because it's one of the strongest arguments for the legalisation of cannabis. We respect those for whom cannabis does have detrimental effects on their mental health. The term"reefer madness" is not a term of abuse directed at ill people or those who are honestly trying to raise awareness of the issue. If there is a vulnerable section of society at risk from cannabis we need to campaign for measures to protect them because none exist at the present time. Promoting a real, factual understanding of the effects on mental illness is an important role for a responsible cannabis law reform campaign and we do not shrink from it.
Schools have a responsibility to provide drug education and consider their response to drug misuse. They do this by working in partnership with parents, health and social services, police and other agencies. Drug education should include illegal drugs, medicines, alcohol, tobacco and volatile substances such as glue. Schools are encouraged to draw up drug education policies. Schools should involve parents in the development of their policy on drugs and keep you informed as to what your child will learn and when. Read below some frequently asked questions (FAQs) from parents on drugs education:
What is my child's school teaching about drugs?
There's nothing unusual in this, and certainly doesn't mean the school has a drug problem. All schools must teach about drugs, alcohol and tobacco as part of the science curriculum, and many discuss the issues in their Personal, Social and Health Education (PSHE) programmes. However, teachers only talk about what is appropriate for the different age groups.
The RSA Commission on Illegal Drugs, Communities and Public Policy was set up to take a fresh look at these questions and to try to untangle the complex knot of issues commonly referred to as 'the drugs problem.' The government's current drug strategy seeks to tackle drug abuse first and foremost as a means of reducing crime. Treatment is most easily accessed through the criminal justice system, and the success of the strategy is measured more in terms of crime reduction than by the more general criterion of 'harm reduction' - harm to drugs users and their families as well as harm to communities, the economy and the taxpayer.

Instead we have developed a system where the students can contact tutors through tutorhunt. Through this mechanism the tutor can reveal the details he/she wishes directly to the student. This system ensures that students don't abuse the system to find personal details on their teachers and misuse it.
We take feedback very seriously and are always interested in your views on our service, good or bad. Ultimately we want to make students and tutors lives easier by connecting to two so any suggestions or improvements you think we can make we'd love to here about it.
