There's never been a better time to support Transform and the drug policy reform movement in general.

Just last week, The New York Times became the latest media outlet to join the reform bandwagon, calling on the US federal government to end the prohibition of cannabis:

"It has been more than 40 years since Congress passed the current ban on marijuana, inflicting great harm on society just to prohibit a substance far less dangerous than alcohol ... But it is long past time to repeal this version of Prohibition.
 
 
In addition, The Sun, Britain’s biggest selling newspaper, also endorsed the call made by the Deputy Prime Minister, Nick Clegg, for an end to the use of incarceration for personal drug possession and for drugs to be treated as a health, rather than criminal justice, issue:

"Nick Clegg makes a powerful argument for reform of our drug laws ... Twenty years ago Mr. Clegg's plan would have seemed dangerously radical. Now after decades of failed attempts to stem the scourge of drugs it starts to sound like common sense."

Although Clegg and The Sun stop short of calling for more far-reaching reform, their comments are indicative of a general shift in the mainstream political and media debate on drugs.

The New York Times and The Sun are the latest in a long line of supporters of drug policy reform.
