This is an outstanding information resource.

There are hundreds of past news articles complete with the publications email addresses for easy letter writing and this site should be visited regularly for good potential articles for your letter writing efforts.

A concerted effort to write letters to these publication should be undertaken by all list members. You will be amazed at how quickly the media can be educated. Impressive PR and media influence can be managed with a consistent letter writing effort. We have seen it hundreds of times over the last few years.

Letters to the editor (LTEs) when published are like small ads that have been taken out for drug policy reform. They are read by many thousands (sometimes millions) of individuals. The MAP effort has reported nearly 3,000 published LTEs to date with an overall advertising value of more than $2.7 MILLION. The average advertising value of just one published LTE is more than $1,000. An LTE in USA Today can be worth more than $10,000.

Be sure to send a copy of your sent LTEs to sentlte@drugsense.org for archiving. Any published LTEs should go to editor@mapinc.org for permanent archiving. It is helpful if you put SENT or PUBLTE in the subject.
