Dear Mr. Carney:
Human Rights Watch writes to express our concern about the New York State District Attorneys Association's
letter of June 18 to Assembly Speaker Sheldon Silver setting forth the Association's opposition to Assembly Bill
8888, the Drug Law Reform, Drug Treatment and Crime Reduction Act of 2001. We believe that opposition is
misguided. But we are also troubled by the Association's reliance on mischaracterizations, hyperbole and
far-fetched scenarios to support its position.

Your tax deductible gift can help stop human rights violations and save lives around the world.
