I really believe that the upcoming Supreme Court case Raich v. Ashcroft (documents) could be the biggest event in drug policy reform in the next four years, and I’ll be following it closely here. I’ll probably be adding a full page guide to the case shortly.
There’s a fabulous article (thanks, Scott) about Angel Raich in tomorrow’s LA Times. It’s a great overview of the person and the case, and worth checking out.
Also: On Monday, Georgetown Law SSDP and the American Constitutional Society will be hosting a symposium on the case, featuring Eric Sterling, Executive Director, Criminal Justice Policy Foundation; Peter J. Cohen, M.D., Adjunct Professor of Law, Georgetown University Law Center; Mark Moller, Senior Fellow in Constitutional Studies, Cato Institute; Sally Satel, M.D. and Author, American Enterprise Institute; Keith Stroup, Executive Director, National Organization for the Reform of Marijuana Laws.
6 pm to 8 pm – Georgetown Law – 12th Floor of Gewirz, 120 F Street NW – Washington, DC
Check it out if you can, and let me know about it.
