The DEA has gotten even more offensive than usual:
FEB 15–(Washington, D.C) The Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA)
announced today the first-ever Candlelight Vigil to be held at DEA
Headquarters in Arlington, Virginia on June 8th, 2006 to 2,500
members gathered for the XVIth Forum of the Community Anti-Drug
Coalitions of America (CADCA).
The “Vigil for Lost Promise” will be a first of its kind remembrance,
and the first of its kind of hope: hope and confidence that our work
is shielding others from the great tragedy of drugs. The DEA along
with its partners will bring together those who have lost loved ones
–and their promise– to drug use and abuse.
For the DEA to do this…
along with such sponsors as Joyce Nalepka and Drug Free Kids: America’s Challenge, NIDA, and the Partnership for a Drug Free America…
is downright sickening.
It is the prohibition promoted by these groups that have contributed to drug deaths.
So they have a special website for this vigil at www.vigilforlostpromise.com (I’m not making it a link because I don’t want to give them links right now — you’ll see why) Go ahead and type it into your browser and check it out.
Now check out a similar-looking site with very different content at http://www.vigilforlostpromise.org
That page links to both Drug War Victims and a description of my view of the lost promise idea.
If you have a web page and would like to help on this, simply place a link to http://www.vigilforlostpromise.org with the words ‘Vigil for Lost Promise’ as the linked words. With some help, we can make the .org site come up first in Google searches.
