Subj: 004 increase in drug-related news in May 2013

I'm seeing something peculiar with drug-related articles in the mainstream
media.

The first week in May, there seems to be a huge increase in drug-related
news. You can see it here (now May 19), at the bottom of this link, the
last chart there ("drug war propaganda themes - last month by day"):

  http://drugpolicycentral.com/bot/stats

Since the Colorado and Washington State legalization measures passed last
November, I had noticed there seemed to be a large drop-off in the volume
of drug-related articles.  Now, the volume (in mainstream media and local
papers) of drug-related articles seems to be returning to previous levels.
 I think most of the difference is driven by centralized, mainstream
"wire" services: AP mostly, and to some extent Reuters.

If I didn't know better, I would assume that the November state
legalization knocked the wind out of prohibitionist sails. But now, six
months later, they have regrouped and re-strategized, and are re-energized
and refreshed (with more taxpayer money I mean). The ONDCP has announced a
"new" policy (read: same old police, prison, jail). So AP, Reuters and the
rest of the Mockingbird MSM shall dutifully press ahead for the last
quarter FY2013 (with the same old propaganda looks like). All in hopes
that this same old sheep-dressed lupine canine of Prohibition will hunt,
one more time. And that's what we're seeing with the restoration of
drug-related traffic in the MSM, back to previous propaganda catapult
volumes.  That's my guess.  I wonder if others are seeing anything like
this too?
