THE ACTION PLAN

Taking ACTION is our middle name! The purpose of our organization is to encourage a pro active stance to rid our country of the most serious crisis it faces: The War On Drugs.

There is no doubt that America's prohibition laws have caused immense damage to our society. Draconian laws like the "RAVE act" (which is now law) strike at the core American values of freedom. America has entered a dark time, but we can change that if we work together and make our voice heard!

What we all must do is take action to end recreational substance prohibition, and replace it with real regulation - study after study proves that this is the only way to remove the profits from the illegal drug trade and shut the drug black market down for good. Ending prohibition will reduce crime and finally bring freedom and safety back to America.

Here at the action center, we want to assist you in taking action to help our nation. Here's a 5 point plan for getting started:

1) LEARN THE FACTS - Read the Drug War FAQ, and read the other materials on this site, and on the sites listed below as educational links. Read Judge James Gray's excellent book, and the other books in our BOOK STORE. If you have children, make sure you check out the Safety First site and DOWNLOAD their free booklet, endorsed by the PTA!

2) DISCUSS THE TRUTH - Talk to your family and friends about the issue. What are their viewpoints and what shaped their views? Encourage them to learn as you have.

3) TELL THE POLITICIANS - Write letters to your Congressional representative and Senators. Hand signed letters are best, and each letter received through the mail is often considered to represent as many as 5000 voters. Your voice counts - and it's easy to contact your representative! Just enter your zip code in the box on the right, and we'll tell you exactly how to contact your representatives - you can even send them a fax or email through the online form! (powered by www.congress.org)

4) VOICE YOUR OPINON - Write letters to the editor of your local papers, and even national magazines. A letter to the editor is simple to do and is one of the most effective ways of being heard - to make it easier for you, read this tip sheet: 10 Steps to Getting Press. And you can find out the media outlets near you by entering your zip code in the media box on the right!

5) GET OTHERS INVOLVED - Form a local community group, or a group within an existing community organization like the PTA.
