Obama speaks with Rolling Stone

A recent issue of Rolling Stone has a great cover photo of Barack Obama with a wonderful big grin. What he has to say about drug policy might bring a smile to your face.

I believe in shifting the paradigm, shifting the model, so that we focus more on a public-health approach… The point is that if we’re putting more money into education, into treatment, into prevention and reducing the demand side, then the ways that we operate on the criminal side can shift.

I doubt we will see huge changes if Obama were elected. But surely he would oversee some steps in the right direction?

Read the full interview reported here While there, be sure to check out the links to other excellent Rolling Stone feature articles on How America Lost the War on Drugs and How America Wastes Money on the War on Drugs (links provided).

I may only be 16, but I do love Barack Obama and I think your blog is really interesting. I don’t know if I could do what you do…
