Then & Now: Portugal's Drug Decriminalization

'Portugal's radical move to put an end to the carnage should prove an example to other countries dealing with similar problems.'
By Tyler Durden: During the 1990s, Portugal was devastated by a drug crisis where one in every 100 people became addicted to heroin and the rate of HIV infection soared to become the highest in the European Union.
But, as Statista's Niall McCarthy notes, Portugal's radical move to put an end to the carnage should prove an example to other countries dealing with similar problems, especially the United States where opioids have killed more people than the totality of American military casualties in Vietnam, both Iraq wars and Afghanistan combined.
That move was decriminalizing the consumption of all drugs and Portugal became the first country to do it.

How Can Colleges Fight Jewish Lobby’s Threats?

CUNY professor stands up to false accusations of anti-Semitism over Palestine advocacy.
By Nora Barrows-Friedman: A right-wing Israel advocacy group has accused progressive professors at a Brooklyn, New York, community college of anti-Semitism.
It is threatening faculty members with legal action based on their perceived support of Palestinian rights.
These accusations are part of an expanding attack on students and faculty at US universities by Israel lobby groups trying to criminalize Palestine solidarity organizing by conflating criticism of Israel with anti-Jewish bigotry.
The Lawfare Project is representing a right-wing professor at Kingsborough Community College who had worked with the group to file a lawsuit against the college in 2016.
The Lawfare Project also threatened to sue members of faculty in October 2018.
The group aims to silence activists, professors and students by filing lawsuits against them and smearing supporters of Palestinian rights as anti-Semites.
The group’s director, Brooke Goldstein, has claimed that there is “no such thing as a Palestinian person.”
