The December 27, 2010 edition of The Nation focuses heavily on Drug Policy Reform
Nearly forty years after President Nixon declared a “war on drugs,” it is painfully clear that the nation’s approach to drug policy is counterproductive and cruel. Shifting our priorities toward a more sensible approachâ€”one that offers treatment rather than punishment for addicts, and that recognizes the deep injustice of mass incarcerationâ€”seems like a daunting task. But as the writers in this forum suggest, we have all the answers and resources we need. If ever there was a time to say enough is enough, it’s now. â€”The Editors
