SACRAMENTO, Calif., Aug. 30 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Four-Star General Barry McCaffrey (ret), former White House National Drug Policy Director (1996- 2001), now West Point Adjunct Professor of International Affairs and a widely cited terrorism and drug policy expert in the media, will keynote and serve as Honorary Chair of a State Capitol rally for recovery and treatment at 11 AM Wednesday, September 5.
