Drug Reform Coordination Network (DRCNet) Biography

Position:
Pro to the question "Should Marijuana Be a Medical Option?"
Reasoning:

“All drugs should be legal for adults for medical or non-medical use. If people want to use it with or without a doctor’s advice, they should be able to do so (though it is certainly a good idea to take your doctor’s advice).”

Description:

“Founded in 1993 by executive director David Borden, DRCNet has from the beginning called unambiguously for an end to prohibition; we are the largest “full-purpose” national membership organization with a wide range of programs to hold that position.

DRCNet is the acknowledged leader in the field of online educational publishing in drug policy reform… DRCNet is also a “support” organization that uses our 32,000+ online network and publishing venues to build, support and amplify the work of all the other organizations in the movement…

Finally, DRCNet is an advocacy organization that works for concrete policy reform in the US at both the federal and state level.”
