In praise of lots of great reporting on drug issues (including marijuana) at Filter

FilterRegular readers are accustom to my regular shout-outs to the website Marijuana Moment for its continued  effective coverage of all sorts of marijuana news and stories.  In addition to my continued affinity for that resource, in recent months a newcomer to the scene is garnering my attention because of its broader coverage of the intersection of a range of drug issues and their intersection with criminal justice and social justice concerns.  This new resource is Filter, which launched in September, is based in NYC, and says its "mission is to advocate through journalism for rational and compassionate approaches to drug use, drug policy and human rights." 

Here are links to just some of Filter's marijuana coverage followed by some interesting pieces on broader drug issues:

we just had a big "marijuana moment" Trumps new Chief of Staff Supports Marijuana reform - I think Trump may be the one to remove it from Schedule 1 - we have to break that barrier.
