SSDP gets press

Do a Google News search for "sensible drug" to have a looksee at all the great press Students for Sensible Drug Policy has been able to foster recently.

In just the past few weeks, we've been in newspapers from coast to coast, including USA Today, the Des Moines Register, the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, the Indianapolis Star, the Detroit Free Press, New Hampshire's Union Leader, and Slate.com.

If you appreciate the anti-Drug War work SSDP is doing on behalf of students nationwide, please make a donation to SSDP today.

A lot of press hits....yet you've done nothing to legalize it. What's taking you so long?

SSDP's main campaign has been to overturn the law that strips financial aid from college students with drug convictions. Earlier this year, we forced Congress to scale it back and reinstate aid to some affected students. I'd say that's a huge success. Wouldn't you?

Then why do you still exist? I guess you won the drug war.

Uhm, no. While this broad nationwide network of students has fostered important and impressive victories in the war against the war on drugs, there is obviously still a lot more work to do, which is why we need all the support we can get. Make a donation, whydoncha, eh?

We're still around because we are winning. :)

Rather than donate, I think there should be a "Girls of SSDP" calendar in the works. Or maybe an "SSDP Girls Gone Wild" dvd. Come on Tom, it's time to do some creative merchandising.

You think you're being droll, Anon, but last fall, some left coast group was doing exactly that, selling advance copies of a "Hotties of Harm Reduction" calendar at the DPA convention in Long Beach, CA.

So it's been done, to unknown effect (they haven't sent out the calendars yet AFAIK, but were collecting donations).
