Seattle Police Department's Drug Market Initiative

No, really, not a shop local campaign.

I'm not a fan of the war on drugs and all the criminalizing of addicts and spending money putting potheads into prison. I am a tentative fan of this new approach, especially because it involves intervention and community programs for the small time, non-violent drug dealers as an alternative for throwing them in prison. Street drug markets are notoriously bad for the neighborhoods in which they're located...I really hope this works.
