A couple of things to check out

“bullet” Loretta Nall’s debate last night turned out relatively non-controversial as her “opponent” was mostly in agreement. (It’s hard to get the real prohibitionists to debate since their position has so little factual base.) You can get the story (and listen to the show) at Loretta’s blog.
“bullet” John at High: The true tale of American Marijuana has completed the first part of his rebuttal of the Drug Czar’s ridiculous publication: “Marijuana Myths & Facts: The Truth Behind 10 Popular Misperceptions”. The rebuttal of the intro is a good start and I look forward to see where he goes from here. Here’s a couple of brief observations I made on that publication back in November (and if you look at the comments on that post, you’ll see that Lorax has started work on a different kind of refutation.) Of course, for the real Marijuana Myths and Facts, you can go to Zimmer and Morgan’s Marijuana Myths Marijuana Facts – an excellent book.
“bullet” Power and Control has a little piece on a drug bust at a Carnival Cruise which caught my attention. Unfortunately, the news on it is very spotty, and I haven’t been able to find more details (such as whether there was any legitimate legal cause/justification to do a search). But the notion of using a “captive” location (like a cruise) to do random drug searches is disturbing to my view of what’s left of the constitution.
“bullet” And finally, Happy Birthday to Libby at Last One Speaks.
