Cultural Baggage

07/16/24 Cliff Schaffer

Cliff Schaffer established the world's largest online library of research into the drug laws at http://www.druglibrary.org. The reason I established the site is simply because I had read some of the major research on our drug laws and I just became astounded at their stupidity. There is no other area in which the law is so completely out of touch with the available research.

Century of Lies

07/16/24 Doug McVay

This week on Century of Lies: Launch of the European Union Drugs Agency. The European Monitoring Centre on Drugs and Drug Addiction was the European Union’s drugs monitoring agency. Technically the EMCDDA is no more but it hasn’t closed, it’s changed: The EMCDDA is now called the European Union Drugs Agency (EUDA). It’s not only a new name, the agency’s mandate has also changed. The question is whether these changes will have an impact on the quality of data, the types of publications and webinars, and the agencies areas of focus? More broadly going forward, what does the agency’s expanded mandate mean? What does the future hold?
