A Group to Watch…

The Baltimore Sun reported Sunday, about a convention of a very interesting coalition:

Yesterday, representatives of 15 black professional organizations that formed the National African American Drug Policy Coalition in the fall met to devise a strategy for changing drug laws they say unfairly punish African-Americans.

Among the group’s leaders is Kurt L. Schmoke, who while mayor of Baltimore in 1988, called drug addiction a public health problem and advocated decriminalizing drugs. The group includes doctors, attorneys, social workers, treatment specialists and judges who endorsed some of the same solutions Schmoke advocated nearly 20 years ago.

Here’s their website.
