Mappers,
   This link was sent to me because of the heroin issue contained herein. I
see they have a legalization debate beginning. I looked around on the site,
which is maintained by Time, and these could be people we want to reach. You
have to sign-up to post, though.

Dear People,

I am so amazed at your astute selection of Judge Judy as one of the 25 Most
Intriguing People of the Year.  I find it extremely intriguing that she
advocates that people with serious health problems should be given tainted
needles, and that we should as she has put it, "let 'em die".  Yes, Judge
Judy is has earned her spot on that list.  Just as Adolph Hitler belongs on
the list of Most Intriguing of the Century.

For the information of all 
here is the address for PEOPLE Magazine

oops,.....BLUSH

MAP DOES NOT HAVE THAT ONE

could it be that People is not quite the drugnews rag we had hoped?  :-)

If anyone can forward that contact info to MAPTALK and also to ME at the
above address, I will see that it gets into the MAP database and of course
it will make it easier to contact People....maybe they will follow up on
the Enquirer's move???

They use an online feedback form ...

http://pathfinder.com/people/web/write_to_us.html

Real straight forward, it asks for your email address, a subject
and your comments.

Looking at the source code we find ...



I don't see any reason why one couldn't send email directly to this
address.

Subj: Another Way -- Can't Build Enough Jails
From: Jim Rosenfield <>
Date: Thu, 16 Dec 1999 08:14:21 -0800

Dear Editors:

re: "Can't Build Enough Jails, So Give Drug Treatment A Chance," your 
proposals are thoughtful and humane, but   what about addicts who only 
crime is possession?  Certainly, we ought to offer treatment to any addicts 
who want it.  But do they need punishment at all?
     And what about drug users who are not addicts?  Last year, there were 
almost 700,000 arrests for marijuana in the U.S.   According to the 
Institute of Medicine, along with most other reputable science, marijuana 
is not addictive.  Those busted for marijuana are not addicts.  Do they 
also need "treatment", or do they merely need long, harsh punishments so 
they stop "dissing" the Czar and setting a "bad example" for some parents' 
kids?
      From the taxpayers perspective, we could certainly find a better use 
for the money we spend busting all those potheads and putting them in jail.

>Studies show that 60 percent or more of those in jail are there because of

>activity. Because almost no inmates get any form drug treatment during
>incarceration, as many as 80 percent commit new crimes post-release.

>According to various studies: America spent around $5 billion for prisons
>and jails 20 years ago. In 1997, prison and jail costs ran taxpayers $31
>billion. Last year, to lock up 1 million nonviolent offenders, states spent

>and the number of drug offenders jailed since then has tripled. Some states

Anyone get this article? Got an Email address? NY Magazine is not in our 
media contact list (but I think it is a NY Times insert isn't it? This 
could easily slip under our radar as it probably doesn't mention drugs but 
it is definitely worth and Focus Alert if we can get it hawked.

Here's a good Extra Credit for the same FA
