      1. FEATURE: REEFER MADNESS FROM THE UNITED NATIONS ON
      INTERNATIONAL ANTI-DRUG DAY
      The UN and US drug czars made some remarkable statements at a

      http://stopthedrugwar.org/chronicle/442/unmadness.shtml

      2. FEATURE: SUMMER MUSIC FESTIVAL SEASON IS HERE, AND SO ARE
      POLICE CHECKPOINTS -- KNOW YOUR RIGHTS!
      Summer is music festival time -- but rock 'n' roll and massive
      crowds can make law enforcement twitchy, and concert-goers too
      often find themselves face to face with the law.

      haven't already read them.

      A federal sting operation purportedly aimed at military and law
      enforcement personnel in the Southwest suspected of cooperating
      with drug traffickers has generated media-worthy sleaze and
      corruption for months. This week it reached a new high in low.

      8. NEWSBRIEF: CALIFORNIA LEGISLATURE VOTES TO GUT PROP. 36 --
      COURT CHALLENGE IMMINENT
      In a vote late Tuesday, the California legislature radically
      rewrote voter-approved Prop. 36, the state's
      treatment-instead-of-incarceration law. Proponents warn the bill
      is unconstitutional and threatens the initiative process.

      9. HARM REDUCTION: RESPONDING TO WAVE OF FENTANYL OVERDOSE
      DEATHS, SENATOR DURBIN PROPOSES OD PREVENTION BILL
      With Chicago among the major cities suffering a wave of overdose
      deaths from heroin cut with the powerful synthetic opiate
      fentanyl, Illinois Senator Richard Durbin is proposing
      legislation to send federal funds to state-designed overdose
      prevention programs in a bid to cut the death toll.

      Ministers from the freshly elected government of Premier Romano

      passed late during the Berlusconi administration. The Health
      Minister isn't even waiting for that.
      http://stopthedrugwar.org/chronicle/442/prodibill.shtml

      12. SOUTHWEST ASIA: IRANIAN OFFICIAL SAYS COUNTRY COULD IGNORE
      DRUG TRAFFICKERS IF UN DOESN'T UP ANTI-DRUG AID
      Iranian officials used the occasion of the UN's Global Anti-Drug

      on its way from Afghanistan to Europe.
