New York Times tells Government to Stop Bullying Students for Sensible Drug Policy

NYT Editorial:

After dragging its feet for months, the agency has asked a tiny nonprofit group to pay a ruinous sum for information on the impact of a law that bars students who have committed drug offenses from receiving federal grants and loans. […]
The fee represents an increasingly common tactic that is used by the government to discourage public inquiries. The student group has acquired pro bono representation and filed suit in federal court. Members of Congress could end the battle by requesting the information on the group’s behalf. Beyond that, Congress should reinforce the Freedom of Information Act — which was meant to prevent this kind of thing in the first place.
