Eric Petro joins SSDP ranks as Summer Intern

Defending your rights can sometimes seem to be a fairly daunting task, especially when the primary threat to exercising those rights is the United States federal government.

I was very impressed and immediately applied for a semester internship, and to my surprise was chosen for it. Today’s current drug policies violate citizen’s liberties, are ineffective, and costly. I have

Another Intern Joins the Team!

Within a week of arriving in Washington D.C., I found myself among some of the most hard working and dedicated individuals I have yet encountered in the drug policy movement. Unsurprisingly, the reputations of various SSDP staffers had far preceded their own welcoming personalities. Drug policy has been the single issue area that has kept me anchored as I developed
