This is Dennis Kucinich’s committee, and the hearing is going to include Ethan Nadelmann. According to the Drug Policy Alliance’s press release:
The Director of the White House Office of National Drug Control Policy (also known as the drug czar), Gil Kerlikowske, and the executive director of the anti-drug-war Drug Policy Alliance, Ethan Nadelmann, will both be testifying.
Mr. Nadelmann testimony will focus on:
- The drug war’s flawed performance measures;
- The lop-sided ratio between supply and demand spending in the national drug budget;
- The lack of innovation in the drug czar’s proposed strategies;
- The Administration’s failure to adequately evaluate drug policies.
