National Organization for the Reform of Marijuana Laws (NORML). Since its founding in 1970, NORML has been the principal national advocate for regulating marijuana. During the 1970s, NORML led the efforts to successfully decriminalize minor marijuana offenses in 11 states and significantly lower penalties in all others. Though the decriminalization movement eventually fell victim to the "war on drugs," NORML has remained the nation's principal organization dedicated to ending marijuana prohibition. Ask not what NORML has done or can do for you - ask what you can do for NORML. Opposing hundreds of thousands of drug warrior mercenaries paid for by your tax dollars, the NORML national office in Washington, D.C. is made up by a staff of only six full-timers, just four of them paid. Thanks to volunteers and interns, NORML nevertheless manages to publish two newsletters, a weekly press release for the media, its World Wide Web site, special reports targeted to political activists and criminal defense lawyers; handle inquiries from the press and requests for assistance from NORML members; make legal referrals; and plan organizational meetings and an annual continuing legal education program for defense lawyers. Know and exercise your rights!

Clifford Schaffer's Library of Drug Policy. Of interest to everyone on both sides of the debate, with documents and arguments from both perspectives. We especially urge you to read Mr. Schaffer's novel and well-documented essays, particularly in the section Strategies to End the Drug War. Mr. Schaffer is uniquely effective at turning around drug warriors' arguments against them - in debates, no Prohibitionist has ever come up with plausible replies. Every activist should be familiar with the Persuasive Strategies, Show Stopper Questions for Your Opponent and Answers to Specific Questions. Also be sure to read Speaking Out Against Drug Legalization, the DEA debate manual which was written in response to the success of the "Persuasive Strategies," posted here with Schaffer's line by line rebuttal. (It was originally titled "How to Hold Your Own in a Drug Legalization Debate," but the title was changed because the first title seemed to assume they would get beaten no matter what and the best they could hope to do is survive.) For a quick introduction to Mr. Schaffer's approach, read his standard speech.
Think For Yourself, Jim Rosenfield's library includes many fascinating pieces by conservatives.
U-Net, DRCNet's web page about the student-led campaign at more than 140 campuses to repeal a new provision in the Higher Education Act that bans financial aid to any student caught possessing marijuana.
