The Rev. Robert H. Schuller, pastor of the Crystal Cathedral, announced Friday that he is removing his name from a petition to reform national drug laws in an attempt to dispel any notion that he was advocating the legalization of drug use. Schuller, in a news conference at the church, said he agreed to sign the petition in haste and was unaware until recently that the resolution organizer, Orange County Superior Court Judge James P.

To clarify some mistaken perceptions of the Coalition for a National Drug Policy Change efforts at our May 10 presentation at the Crystal Cathedral, we solely wanted to spark a national debate and investigation to bring about change.
