Druglibrary -- The most extensive on-line, drug policy library in the world. Hosted by the Drug Reform Coordination Network (DRCNet).
Drug Policy Foundation, leading anti-Prohibitionists
In his book For Your Own Good, libertarian Jacob Sullum takes a skeptical look at "second-hand smoke."
"Consumer Freedom Network" (formerly "Guest Choice Network"): originally founded by restaurant and tavern owners who want to leave health choices to informed consumers, rather than political zealots and cranks.
"Open Law"s challenge to Congress's perpetual extension of copyright at the behest of wealthy media conglomerates.
The US Constitution allows copyright only for a "limited" term (Article 1, Section 8, clause 8). The Court's failure, thus far, to enforce this limit encourages suppression of free speech, as in the "Wind Done Gone" case.
Carl Malamud's "Public Resource" makes US public documents (eg. court decisions, patent filings, and building codes) freely accessible to the taxpayers who paid for them and the people required to know and obey them.
(The name is a parody off "free-range" livestock.)
Questions the panic and litigation-fear that keeps kids from normal, growing activities like walking to school, Halloween trick-or-treating, and school recess.
debunks bogus medical claims.

"Hugo S. Cunningham". For reasons unclear, that no longer works. They can still be found under my original "author" E-mail addresses (real or artificial), but those have changed over the years.
