Clergy for a New Drug Policy - Sightings (Martin Marty)
The War on Drugs apparently is our longest running American war, and it doesn't appear that the anti-drug side is winning. This war was declared back when I was in Junior High, so that's a bit of time passing. As the war "escalated" our prisons have expanded exponentially. So, maybe it's time to reconsider our efforts. That is the feeling among a growing number of clergy who work with those caught in this war. Like Martin Marty, I have no expertise in such matters, but maybe it's time to do some creative thinking. In this article Marty introduces us to at least some of that creative thinking so the war on drugs doesn't rival the 100 Years War!
