an easy way to help somebody

I've decided to give a little notice in my posts if they are going to be more than just my thoughts from the day. From now on, when you see a post preceded by a (P) it means it will have a public policy focus and when you see an (R) it means I'm rambling. If you see (PR), be forewarned; I'm particularly verbose when rambling about policy.

(P) Our myriad of drug laws are fascinating and complex. But a very simple thing you can do that will help real people is to write your members of congress telling them to support the amendment to stop funding raids by the DEA and DOJ on people who are abiding by local and state laws governing marijuana growth, possession, and use. Contrary to popular belief, the Supreme Court didn't rule about medical marijuana. They ruled about federalism. In short, they said that local and state laws are superceded by federal drug law. In other words, the Federal government needs to allow cities and states to make and enforce their own laws. If you don't know what to say, go to the Drug Policy Alliance website. Whether you're against federal control over individuals or support medical marijuana or think the government should spend less money, this issue is very straightforward. Let individual states make and enforce their own laws.
