No matter when or how you celebrate harvest season — apparently in Canada they celebrated last month — I hope everyone (including Drug Warriors & Prohibitionists) have a happy and safe celebrat

Thinking CAP's blog
Part of the website improvements I have in mind include changing the location where files are downloaded from. So for the next ½ hour or so, some of the links will be broken for those trying to download the PDFs, one podcast episode which is available, and user pictures.
I also hope to update the HTML5 animations and remake the homepage so it’s doesn’t resemble a blog. The latter will probably not happen this week, and probably will take place in stages.
Wow, so many things to report. From high-level to low-level.
Probably the most significant recent event was the 2011 International Drug Policy Reform Conference. It was totally amazing. Awesome. Every superlative under the sun. If you didn’t go, please check out the website: http://ReformConference.org where you can get a taste of some of the great speeches given, like the one Alice Huffman gave during the opening plenary where she made us all gasp at once.
I’ve been remiss in regularly publishing editorials from the Drug Truth Network. I apologize.
So I think it’s time to do so! In fact let’s have a festival!
Now that the handouts have stopped evolving so much it’s time to address an accusation some have made against them, “propaganda.” Since the handouts don’t have enough space to cite every source, I
President Obama invites you (and three others) to an all expenses paid trip and dinner to teach him about the intrinsic failures of prohibition and what to do about it. We need action, not just lip service or promises of “tomorrow,” or “I’ll have my people look into it.”
'Blueprint for Regulation' Now in Five Languages: English, Portuguese, Spanish, Italian, and Russian
In case you have friends who speak Portuguese, Spanish, Italian, and/or Russian, you should know about two new translations of the awesome book, “After the War on Drugs: Blueprint for Regulation.”
Been busy. All three flyers have been updated, I uploaded them directly to the server since I couldn't connect to the website, it was too busy.
Ok, just cranked out a major new piece, a flyer for everyone to print out and share with others.
I left off a few things from yesterday’s post.
MAMP, Drupal, CiviCRM
I’ve been updating a batch of software I’ve used to hold contacts. Although I love Apple Macs, before OS X I needed a decent contact manager and other integrated software so I used FileMaker Pro to develop a relational database which kept track of individuals, organizations, addresses, etc… But as my needs grew it also meant I had to spend more time developing my databases. And although I love a great puzzle and learning new things, I needed to focus on other matters, not software development.
“So, what’s been going on?” you may ask. Probably the most exciting thing, and one of the most time consuming, has been updating “What We Are Saying and What We Are Not Saying.” Then making it fit on a flyer.
I hope to publish it soon. As with all the flyers and handouts thus far, they are designed to be printed by average people on average printers on average paper and to that end the flyers are not heavy on ink, which is really expensive.
I’m awaiting feedback from trusted sources, so hold your horses. :-)
The Mission Statement section on the About page has been updated a little bit. But we have a much more significant update coming soon.
I just wrote a letter to Obama and put it on one of his websites.
Please request a free dinner invitation from President Obama to further tell him of the intrinsic failures of prohibition.
This is just a quick blog post to announce there is a new flyer from Christians Against Prohibition.
Just a few quick notes.
Here's hoping everyone has a great day celebrating the fact Jesus rose from the dead!
