In a full-page ad in today’s New York Times, the Drug Policy Alliance (DPA) thanks the citizens of Washington and Colorado for voting to legally regulate and tax marijuana—signaling “the beginning of the end for the costly and unjust war on drugs.” The ad, created by Fenton, also recognizes US Presidents Clinton and Carter, NY Governor Cuomo, President Santos of Colombia, and other political leaders for their efforts to end the war on drugs. The headline: “80 Years After the End of Prohibition, Prohibition is Finally Coming to An End.”

DPA works to promote drug policies that are grounded in science, compassion, health and human rights, rather than fear and prejudice. Join the movement at www.drugpolicy.org/act.
