 The US House Subcommittee on Criminal Justice, Drug Policy, and Human Resources has announced it will hold a hearing on "The Pros and Cons of Legalizing Illegal Narcotics and Decriminalization" on June 16 ("Bloomsday" to Ulysses fans).
The hearing is the first specifically devoted to the issue of broad drug policy reform since 1988. Representatives from The Lindesmith Center, The CATO Institute, The Drug Policy Foundation, and the ACLU have been invited to testify. When the hearing was first scheduled, some invitees were told the topic would be "the legalization movement" itself, leading one former House insider to compare it to hearings held by the House Committee on Un-American Activities to grill anti-war activists during the Vietnam era, though subcommittee staff members have subsequently said the hearings really will be a discussion of the legalization issue.
