Something is in the air! People are blogging. Movements are growingThe criminal justice system is under scrutiny. Reform is coming that can engage good screening and address addiction as causal where appropriate and deal with the disease seriously.  Those days are coming.  Trends show American’s are seeing addiction as a public health issue and a chronic liability that needs a stop valve.  Today we are seeing the Obama administration follow suit.  A May 11th article, New Obama Strategy Treats ‘War’ on Drugs as Public Health Issue shows this shift.  The ice of public denial is breaking.  The journalgazette.net calls Obamas recent actions a policy shift.  As American’s continue to voice out their losses and concerns, the levees of resistance to reform are giving way.  Americans want  drug law reform and full medical inclusiveness towards addiction and alcoholism.  It is not just a personal issue.  The fall-out affects all of us.  Keep talking and lobbying.  Your making a difference.  links from Mary S.
