VCL Addresses War on Drugs

by TChris

If you are a lawyer or judge concerned about the insanity of the drug war, take a moment to visit the Voluntary Committee of Lawyers. Co-founded by former Attorney General Elliott Richardson, "the VCL seeks to promote, within and by the legal profession, informed discussion about the objectives of the drug war and its costs to our cherished institutions of liberty and justice."

Lawyers and judges can electronically sign an open letter calling for a public debate about the best way to implement "better drug laws in which fear, prejudice, and punitive prohibitions yield to common sense, science, public health and human rights."
