For most topics 1997 articles are the usually the earliest media articles in the MAP archives. & YY1=1997 is not required or necessary after the search terms because the results page allows searching farther back in time. But if you know for sure that you need to go back to at least a certain year in order to pull up all the articles you desire then it saves people some time to add the search term for the year to search back to. To go back as far as 1998 use &YY1=1998. And so on.

Or use the Google form below (the last of the three forms) to enter the search terms. It produces the same results when searching this site, but the resulting shortcut URL may be different or longer.

4 free search engines for this Drug War website, or for the web as a whole. Try them all. They get different results when searching this website. Putting "quotes" around phrases can sometimes help in limiting some of the results to pages containing those complete phrases. Other than Google the search spiders for these search engines have not indexed this website in a long time. One has to log in and click a link telling the spiders to index the sites. Google does it automatically which is another reason to go with Google.

MULTI-SITE Google search forms. [TopLink]

See the multi-choice news search forms on this page. You can choose a news site from the dropdown window. The search forms can be emailed in HTML (color and graphics) email. Or just send the URL of the page where you found the search form. You can click "save" in the file menu of your browser. This will save it to your computer for use anytime you are online. It is easy to add or delete site choices in the search form. Just look at the HTML code in any web page editor. Or click "source" in the view menu of MS Internet Explorer.

Another multi-site Google search form is found below. The form below with the list of choices in the dropdown menu is only a small part of the search form found at the bottom of the search page of the Media Awareness Project (MAP). Go there to see the hundreds of alphabetized sites that are on the dropdown menu there:

Search Drug-Related Sites:

If you don't get results from one site, then select another from the dropdown menu above. Some sites may not yet be indexed by Google. They may not have even been submitted to Google for indexing. To freely submit the site to Google and 9 other search engines instantly, go to this free instant submission site link below. Just enter the homepage URL web address of the site.

The following HTML code has been deleted from the search form that was adapted from the one on the MAP page and from the other multi-site Google search forms here. Less inputs means the resulting search shortcut URL after a search is done is shorter. So the shortcut URL is easier to pass on. Especially in email where long URLs will wordwrap to 2 lines if they are too wide for the email column width. This can prevent them from clicking correctly.
<input name="hl" type="hidden" value="en">
<input name="ie" type="hidden" value="ISO-8859-1">
<input name="as_qdr" type="hidden" value="all">

The HTML above does not seem to be necessary in the search form, and deleting it also lessens the amount of HTML code and kilobytes in multi-site search forms. This makes it easier for others to create some very focused multi-site search forms that use only 2 or 3 kilobytes. These short search forms are easy to add to HTML email, web pages, etc.. Others can pass them on easily also, by copying and pasting them.

Here is another example of a multi-site search form:
Choose site:

Here is the basic HTML code for the form just above. Note the pattern for adding and deleting sites. It is fairly straightforward. Feel free to copy or adapt it.
<form method="get" target="_blank" name="multi" action="">
<table border="0" bgcolor="#eeeeee" cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0">
<font color="#000000">
<b>Choose site:</b> <select name="as_sitesearch" size="1">
<option value="">This site.</option>
<option value=>The web.</option>
<option value=""></option>
<option value=""></option>
<option value="">MAP-DrugNews.</option>
<option value="">San Francisco Bay Area Indymedia.</option>
</select> <br>
<input name="q" type="text" size="35">&nbsp; <input type="submit" value="Google Search">

Anyone can add sites to the form, or delete sites from the form. To see the HTML code for the form, or for any web page, click "source" from the view menu of the MS Internet Explorer browser in order to see the html code as a text file. You can see the pattern for adding more sites. Use Notepad or Wordpad to edit the text file. Then change the text file extension (.txt) to an html file extension (.htm). Double-click this html file to open it in your browser. Viola, you're a webmaster. You can also use a WYSIWYG html program such as FrontPage in order to easily edit the search form.

Use the drop-down menu above to choose from many websites. Such as the Media Awareness Project (MAP-DrugNews) in order to search the MAP-Drugnews press and media archive. Or etc.. Then enter some search terms and/or phrases. Google may not pull up the absolute latest articles and pages. It depends on when Google last indexed the particular website.

Put quotes around phrases in order to limit results to pages with that exact phrase in it. For example; when searching for "million marijuana march"

If you are searching the MAP archives, and you want to pull up articles from a specified year only, then add one of these search terms below. They are found in MAP-DrugNews URLs:

If you want MAP articles from two or more specific years put an uppercase "OR" between the search terms for the years:
v99 OR v02
v02 OR v97 OR v00

For example; you can use the Google form above to search the MAP-DrugNews archives for some specific MMM articles from certain years. Just enter this whole line of search terms below into the search form. Just copy and paste:

"million marijuana march" uk OR canada OR london v02 OR v01 OR v99

Here are a couple results (of many) from such a search. Note how the article year is designated in the URLs:

UK: Wire: Thousands March In Britain For Legal Cannabis
UK: Wire: Thousands March In Britain For Legal ... The marches in London, Manchester and
Birmingham to ... under the name of the "Million Marijuana March." "The march ... - 7k - Cached - Similar pages

MMM search shortcut for archives. Results in chronological order. Latest on top. Unfortunately, some results are for MMM mentioned only in a comment.

* press and media archives. Expanded search form.

The expanded CannabisNews search form has a checkbox for phrase searching. Or you can add "&PS=on" to the search shortcut URL. In either case phrase searching is not perfect, because when searching for 3 or more terms, the search engine pulls up articles with any of the terms adjacent to one of the other terms. All the terms must be in the article or comments somewhere though. But not necessarily all 3 terms adjacent to each other. 2 adjacent seems to be enough.

You can set it to pull up any number of articles up to the maximum number of articles allowed (320). Just add &H=320 (or a number under 320) to the search shortcut.

Results are in chronological order. The default order for results is by date of the article (not the comments). So it is fairly easy to figure out the year of the article by running your cursor over the result URLs and noting the numbers.

This sometimes produces better results than using Google MMM search shortcuts for CannabisNews, and with a specific year in the search shortcut. Google results do not arrive in chronological order of the articles. So it can be difficult to find the year of an article without opening the article. Because the search term for the year may only be found in the comments. Comments will sometimes mention years other than the year of the article.

The CannabisNews search engine searches the articles AND the comments. So some pages are pulled up in which the search terms are found only in the comments.

Open the article. You can use the "find" command in the edit menu of your browser to locate whether the search phrase "million marijuana march" is in the article or in the comments.

Google pulls up search results directly from the media website chosen. The Google search engine is not searching the MAP website. Try it and you'll understand:

*Phrase searching at MAP/DrugNews using Google search shortcuts:"americans+for+safe+access" and"million+marijuana+march"

Phrase searches, and site-specific searches. Use quotes around a phrase to get most big search engines to find all the words together as a phrase. Not as separate words scattered around a web page. Here is a Google search shortcut URL for finding articles (only) with the phrase "Patients Out Of Time" in them. Click these 2 URLs below and see for yourself. Google results also show the sentence in which the phrase is found. This can be very helpful."patients+out+of+time" and

Search shortcut how-to. In or or search engines, just look up the words you want to find in the web pages. Then copy the results URL from the address window of MS Internet Explorer. Delete everything after the search terms found in the URL. Those extra characters after the search terms in the URL are unnecessary. They only change the default settings in results (such as number of web pages to return per page of results). A short URL under 70 characters will be one line long in most email, and thus will be made clickable in most email, and in many message boards and list archives. That is because it will not need to be word-wrapped to fit the message width allowed. One can shorten the or or shortcut URLs further by deleting www. The less characters in a shortcut URL, the better. That is because some email services allow less characters per line than others before word-wrap occurs. Many of the other characters and default query terms in a search shortcut URL can be deleted too. The shortcut URLs on this page have been shortened probably as much as is possible.
