Make a Difference -- Talk to People about the War on Drugs

In 2002, the rate was 1 in 142, now it is 1 out of 99. Our incarceration rate has skyrocketed in the past few years and is now the highest in the world. See more from this article written by CBS and AP.

Below is an embedded video from the IDPI - Interfaith Drug Policy Initiative and Common Sense Drug Policy, two groups that are working together to make a difference in the wasteful complex and ineffective "War on Drugs". The other video can be seen at this link or you can e-mail for more information.

They want to get the word out about this initiative and ask community organizers to take these steps:

1) Get free copies of Clergy Speak Out Against The War On Drugs and the ACLU’s new Marijuana, It’s Time for a Conversation, featuring Rick Steves
-Copies of Clergy Speak Out Against The War On Drugs are available by contacting

2) Organize a local meeting, watch the DVDs, and then…

3) Have a one-hour discussion, and invite local policy makers and media to a follow-up meeting to address your concerns.
