    [h1] Protestant, Catholic and Jewish Clergy Speak Out Against The War On Drugs [/h1]
    Mike Gray, an author, film maker, and Common Sense for Drug Policy Chairman, in cooperation with the Interfaith Drug Policy Initiative, has created a documentary titled "Protestant, Catholic and Jewish Clergy Speak Out Against The War On Drugs."




    The reasons for making this video were clear. As Rabbi Michael Feinberg, Executive Director of the Greater NY Labor Religion Coalition, says in the film, "I would say that the war on drugs has caused as much devastation to communities around this country, particularly low income communities, as the drugs themselves." And in the words of The Very Rev. Scott Richardson, Dean at St. Paul's Episcopal Cathedral in San Diego, "One of the reasons that we as religious leaders need to speak out against it is because we share responsibility for it."

    I will try to add the full video to the archive when it becomes available but for now you can see samples here.

    This gives hope that this war might actually end.

    The alliance against the war on drugs is growing and will grow. I'm sure someday all this nonsense will be ended.

    Remember Galileo Galilei? ;)
