Aaron Houston, the Marijuana Policy Project lobbyist in Washington (Whom I interviewed for the Tufts Observer Cover Story) sums up his testimony for congress regarding the DEA budget... which is, by the way, approximately $2.5 Billion of the $40 Billion spent annually on the drug war. Maybe we should think about that a bit more given the current economic climate; 40 Billion dollars a year is not tiny drop in the bucket.
Houston is an incredible guy and I'm encouraged that he is the direct voice to elected officials of the marijuana legalization movement. I think everyone should take Houston's advice and contact your federal representative. Please, this is more important than you'd think.
