I became concerned with the problem of the drug war in the late 1990s when I saw Judge James Gray on national television make some very sensible remarks about the truth of the drug war. So, I began to read, starting with his book Why Our Drug Laws Have Failed and What We Can Do About It. That led to a long series of reading and discovery of the problem. Since I am a Christian, and I believe people are inherently worthy of consideration, I began to examine the problems of the drug war in a scholarly way. I read the pros and cons, and returned to Judge Gray’s book as one of the most sensible summaries of the problem. I have used the book in class to discuss the moral problem of the drug war, how the government has turned its own citizens into enemies in order to wage war on them. This web site and the blog (not updated in a while,) is my response to the injustices of the drug war waged by our government on the people of the United States and subsequently the rest of the world.

  1. Mjmemo.com Editorial Team,

    I came across this ” – https://www.mjmemo.com/blog/?p=76 “of your site and saw that you were linking to ” this page – https://delphihealthgroup.com/free-rehab-guide/ ” as a resource on addiction. Thank you for providing this type of resource – we’re currently on a mission to increase public awareness of Sobriety.

    Public awareness of addiction has skyrocketed during the American opioid epidemic, but access to treatment remains a problem for many families seeking help.

    This is why I’m recommending that you add this link to your page, or whevever it is appropriate on your website: http://carlavista.com/live-with-us/

    We’ve found this to be the most comprehensive overview of all options and how to navigate them.
    We were creating a safe, structured, supportive community that combats the isolation that accompanies addiction. We were proving that people can rebuild their lives, one day at a time, one step at a time.

    If you could add this resource, it would be greatly appreciated and meaningful in my efforts to help improve access to treatment.

    If you’re not responsible for edits to this page or site, it would be greatly appreciated if you could point me in the right direction. If you’d prefer I not contact you again, please just let me know.
