These headlines are brought to you by the our friends over at Students for Sensible Drug Policy, the most effective agents of change in the world of drug policy reform. If you’re a student, you should get involved and active with your school’s SSDP chapter (or start one if there isn’t one already).

Let’s end the war on drugs once and for all. Swing over to SSDP.org to learn more.
