Nada on NIDA


The National Institute on Drug Abuse did not like the way it looked in its Wikipedia entry, so last August it began excising the naughty bits, including a section on "controversial research," a description of the government's marijuana cultivation, and references to nongovernmental sources. NIDA critics restored the expurgated material, NIDA cut it out again, and so on. After months of this, The Politico reports, the entry has been reduced to "four basic, non-controversial sentences followed by 10 links to federal Web sites."
