    The inside story on three decades of the so called "War on Drugs" in the U.S.A. An absolute must read for anyone interested in the subject of drug prohibition or simply anyone living in the U.S.A.

    'You know, I've been a reporter a long time. In fact, I was a Drug War reporter for a while at the Atlanta Constitution. Usually when you're a reporter, you know what the story is when you start, and your reporting is just a matter of getting all the facts and figures, quotes and color to back it up. But when I started looking into this one, I was just astounded. I would come home every night and would say to my wife, You won't believe what the government can do now. You won't believe how many people are in prison, what has happened to the Bill of Rights and how much money we are spending. She's a journalist too and she was skeptical. She'd say, Oh, you must have that wrong, go back and find it again; and I would go back and find I'd gotten it right the first time.'

  7. Marijuana and Medicine: Assessing the Science Base
    Janet E. Joy, Stanley J. Watson, Jr., and John A. Benson, Jr.,
    Editors; Institute of Medicine

    ISBN: 0-309-07155-0

    The 1999 scientific report supported by US drug czar Barry McCaffrey that he surely wishes he'd never asked for. General McCaffrey then made the fatal mistake of ordering a study from the Institute of Medicine (IOM) of the Academy of Sciences. For about $900,000 it was to determine the facts by review existing literature and talking to patients and doctors to determine what is known about marijuana as a medicine. The study confirmed that marijuana has well established medical uses, does not lead to harder drugs, has a lower potential for dependence than alcohol or nicotine and it's side effects are within the range tolerated for other legal medicines. This study has basically destroyed any justification for classifying marijuana with other drugs that are addictive or without established medical use. See for some quotes for details.
