World's Largest Online Library of Drug
The Drug War obviously isn't working. It is time we took another look at the
evidence on drugs. Now you can do it through the Internet. The DRCNet Online Library
contains thousands of documents covering all aspects of drugs and drug policy, from
ancient history to the latest developments from Europe. You can find this library on the
World Wide Web at the following location:
What These Libraries Contain:
- Major Studies of Drugs and Drug Policy over the last 100 years,
including summaries and full text of many studies. These studies include the New York
City Bar Association Report (1994), the National Commission on Marihuana and Drug
Abuse (1972), the La Guardia Committee Report (1944), and many more.
- Historical Information, including the shocking origins of the drug
laws. Included in the collection are the actual transcripts of the hearings for the
Marihuana Tax Act and many other historical works, including texts dating back to 550
BC. Why were these laws passed in the first place? You will find it hard to believe - it
had nothing to do with what you have assumed.
- Latest News from Europe - including up-to-date information on drug
policies in the Netherlands as well as other developments, such as the heroin
maintenance clinics currently being run in Switzerland.
- DEA Judge Young's ruling on medical marijuana. In 1989, the DEA's
Chief Administrative Law Judge finished hearing two years of evidence on medical marijuana
and ruled that the DEA's actions in restricting the medical use of marijuana were
"unconscionable." Our online library has the full text of Judge Young's
- The Drug Legalization Debate - Extensive materials covering all of
the arguments in the "drug legalization" debate from all perspectives, including
the full text of documents from all points of view. See all the arguments and all the
evidence from both sides.
- Government Documents - We maintain an extensive collection of
Federal and State Government documents related to drug policy including many reports which
have never been formally published or are so rare that they are not available in most
- Much, much more - literally thousands of documents on a
huge range of topics!
We absolutely guarantee:
- That you will find the information in these libraries surprising and fascinating
- no matter what your current point of view.
- You have never seen or heard much of this information anywhere before. We have
some of the best information resources you will find anywhere in the world on this topic.
