Drug Policy Work

2000-2010: DrugSense / Media Awareness Project (MAP) / Drug Policy Central (DPC)

When a structure was needed to contain and formalize the growing and increasingly important role DrugSense/MAP was providing to the drug reform community for internet services and technical support, Drug Policy Central was created to provide everything from sliding scale hosting and web design (including fully subsidized) to internet support, programming and innovative tools.

I spearheaded the development of DPC Hosting and worked as part of the team available to assist any of the 100+ Drug Policy Central clients who seek internet support.

Prior to joining DrugSense/MAP/DPC, I was, or am, involved in different areas of drug reform:
