Special drug issue on the streets tomorrow


Street Roots first special edition of 2008 - the Drug Issue is out tomorrow.

The newspaper is jam packed with articles and commentaries, including a look at Oregon’s incarceration rate for drug related offenses and Portland’s myriad of recovery and harm reduction programs.

The paper has a fascinating interview with Judge Christopher Marshall with the Multnomah County’s drug treatment court, and we talk with Narco News founder Alberto Giordano.

We bring you an in-depth look at Portland’s controversial Service Coordination Team and how it relates to Project 57 and a neighborhood list made up of “chronic offenders.”

Portland author Martha Gies walks us through Gary Webb’s long shadow of reporting about the drug trade in Latin America and how it eventually led to the investigative reporters death.

We talk to Portland’s Drug and Vice squad, hear from law enforcement officers against prohibition, and highlight poetry from addicts on the streets.

All of this and much more in the special edition hitting the streets tomorrow.

Buy a copy from a neighborhood vendor today!

Hi there! I understand this is sort of off-topic however I had to ask.

Does building a well-established website like yours take a lot of work?
I'm brand new to running a blog however I do write in my journal on a daily basis. I'd like
to start a blog so I can share my experience and thoughts online.
Please let me know if you have any kind of ideas or tips for brand new aspiring blog
owners. Appreciate it!
