Resolution for a Federal Commission on Drug Policy

Introduction

On February 26, 1993 a group of concerned citizens met at the Hoover Institution on the campus of Stanford University and unanimously passed a resolution which recommends that our country investigate the possibility of change in the way we handle our drug problem. The Resolution, which recommends that these medical and social problems be treated with medical and social solutions, is attached hereto. It further recommends that one final blue ribbon commission be immediately empowered by the President to recommend revisions of the drug laws of these United States to reduce the harm caused by this drug problem.
