FROM THE PRESIDENT

Dear Colleagues:

This will be my last official newsletter to all of you as President of the Charleston County Bar Association, as my term expires in February 2003. Mark Tanenbaum takes over next year, and I know he will find the experience as rewarding as I have this past year.

It's been an eventful year, with the opening of our new Judicial Center obviously being the highlight. It was a privilege to represent the Bar Association at the dedication ceremonies, and I thank all of you for that opportunity.

As I reflect on the past year I am reminded that our Bar Association is truly unique and steeped in tradition. Our Bar had its beginnings over 300 years ago, and over these many years our members have had a tradition of service to our clients and to our community.

We have always been fortunate to have excellent, well trained attorneys as members who have, over the years, represented their clients ethically and energetically.

We have always taken an active role in our community. Our earliest members included signers of the Declaration of Independence, and thereafter, throughout the years, our members have served in both the state and federal judiciary, legislative and executive branches of government, and on numerous local boards and commissions.

The tradition I have perhaps cherished the most since I joined our Bar 26 years ago, however, is the civility and respect we have shown to each other over the years in the day-to-day practice of law. We have had a wonderful tradition of honoring our word and following the golden rule in our dealings with one another. With the recent growth of our organization and the modern stresses placed upon us, we need to be mindful of this tradition and to guard it jealously. We were fortunate to inherit this tradition from our predecessors, and it's now our turn to lead by example. We need to "pay it forward" to our newest members and to those who follow.

Thanks again for the honor of allowing me to serve as President. With warmest regards, I am,

Sincerely,

E. Douglas Pratt-Thomas

EVALUATING THE WAR ON DRUGS

Wednesday Evening Series of Four Public Programs at the College of Charleston

Host:

Prof. Bill Danaher, Dept. of Sociology

Time & Location:

7:00 p.m., Education Center, Room 118,25 St. Philip Street

Co-sponsored by:

John Rivers Communications Museum, Political Science Department, Political Science Club, Latin American and Caribbean Studies Program, Women's Studies Program, Sociology and Anthropology Department, Alliance for Planet Earth Club, Womyn's Forum Club, International Affairs Club, Robert Scott Small Library

FEB. 12: THE POLICIES OF THE WAR ON DRUGS

Video:

"War on Drugs: A War on Ourselves" (ABC News special with John Stossel, air date 7/30/02, 40 min.) This documentary examines the efficacy of the War on Drugs, as well as the financial and human costs. It asks: "If this is a War on Drugs, then who is winning?" It also examines various European alternatives for dealing with the drug problem. Our invited speakers will discuss the policies that they are mandated to enforce and their reactions to these policies.

Speakers:

Judge Jack Guedalia, Summary Court, Central Bond Court Magistrate
Charleston Police Chief Reuben Greenberg
Special Agent John Ozaluk, in charge of the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) Offices for South Carolina

FEB. 19: PRISONERS IN THE WAR ON DRUGS

Video:

"The War on Drugs" (VPRO TV, Holland, 1999, 45 min.) In the second half of this 90-minute production, Eric Sterling, President of the Criminal Justice Policy Foundation; Joanne Page, President of the Fortune Society; and Julie Stewart, President of Families Against Mandatory Minimums, discuss provocative issues associated with mandatory minimum sentencing. Children of convicted drug users are shown being raised in group homes. Also discussed are various problems that result from drug addicts being treated as criminals rather than as people with a serious medical problem. Following the video, speakers will address problems of drug-addicted pregnant women, as well as the societal costs of the War on Drugs and the enforcement tactics used to wage it.

Speakers:

Nora Callahan, The November Coalition for Drug War Prisoners and Their Loved Ones, Colville, Wash.
Wyndi Anderson, South Carolina Advocates for Pregnant Women

FEB. 26: FOREIGN POLiCY AND THE WAR ON DRUGS

Video:

"Good Intentions, Bad Results" ("60 Minutes" news special, air date 1/13/02, 14 min.) In 2001, the U.S. State Department's 1.3 billion dollar program, Plan Colombia, was responsible for fumigating 200,000 acres of land, much of it in Colombia's Ama.zon Basin, with a controversial glyphosphate/Atplus300F herbicide combination. The intention of Plan Colombia is to destroy coca plants, from which cocaine is derived, and to deprive rebels of money from the drug trade. Although the cocaine trade has continued unabated, the effects on the impoverished farmers and the rainforest have been devastating. These effects include massive defoliation, loss of food crops, death of fish and livestock, and severe health problems among the children-including serious skin rashes. Congressional and environmental representatives are interviewed in this video, as are Colombian farmers and governmental officials. Rand Beers, Assistant Secretary of State for International Narcotics and Law Enforcement Affairs, also comments. Beers is in charge of the U.S. spraying program in Colombia. Our speaker, whose lecture follows the video, has extensive first-hand experience in Colombia witnessing the coca fumigation.

Speaker:

Sanho Tree, Institute for Policy Studies, Washington, D.C.

MAR. 5: NO PROGRAM TONIGHT

MAR. 12: ALTERNATIVES TO PRISON IN THE WAR ON DRUGS

The speakers will discuss various strategies utilized in Europe and the United States, including successful current treatment practices. We will focus on alternative policies, such as decriminalization and legalization of drugs, and the medicalization of drug addiction through "Harm Reduction" methods. Also discussed will be Drug Courts, in which arrested drug users are given treatment options instead of prison sentences.

Speakers:

Dr. Gene Tinelli, Addiction Psychiatrist, SUNY Health Science Center, Syracuse, N.Y.
Probate Judge Irv Condon, Charleston Drug Court
Mark Cowell, Director, Charleston County Department of Alcohol and Other Drug Services
