Dear Editor, Rep. Hanna seeks to deceive when he lumps marijuana in with alcohol as a cause of workplace injuries. The fact is that 5-20% of on-the-job occupational injury involve alcohol without any other drug involved. House Republican Leader Bruce Hanna is probably working for the drug testing industry since they are the only ones who gain from universal drug tests. Employers stand to lose a bundle if Hanna succeeds because according to the Le Moyne study, ... [full story]

To the editor- The column by Debra Saunders, The Drug War Body Count, (Mon, March 16, 2009) is a necessary read. The time has come to end this drug war madness.

Three former Latin American presidents are not lightweight figures by any means. Even the Obama administration is now taking steps, ... [full story]
