Props to the Prez

For nominating Thomas McLellan as Deputy Director of the Office of National Drug Control Policy. This is a good indication that we'll finally start to move away from the insane, counterproductive, ideologically driven policies of treating addiction punitively, locking up more of our population than any other putative democracy on the earth. I've gone into why and how this is a horrendous disaster plenty of times before. Anyway, the times they are a changin'.
