The Media Awareness Project

Looking for a wide variety of up-to-the-minute media articles on drug issues? You've come to the right place! MAP stands for Media Awareness Project. Their slogan is "Moving the Discourse on Drugs from Hysteria to Sanity and Humanity". Certainly to the extent that self-education contributes to sanity, they must be right. A recent visit found 31 articles posted in a single day, on topics as diverse as Reassessing Drug Education, the inquiry into the shooting of a teenager by boder guards trying to stifle drug smuggling into the U.S. from Mexico, agricultural hemp, and medical marijuana. Don't miss this site!
