Conferences

Some excellent conferences coming up shortly…

This is the major biennial International Drug Policy Reform Conference being held November 2-5 in Los Angeles. Full of speakers, workshops, and social events with over 1,000 people in attendance.

An excellent group of speakers including Fernando Henrique Cardoso, Former President, Brazil; Jorge Castañeda, Former Minister of Foreign Affairs, Mexico; Mary Anastasia O’Grady, Member of the Editorial Board, Wall Street Journal; Luis Alberto Lacalle Pou, Speaker of the House of Deputies, Uruguay; Glenn Greenwald; Columnist and Blogger, Salon; Leigh Maddox, Board Member, Law Enforcement Against Prohibition, Professor, University of Maryland Francis Carey School of Law; Ethan Nadelmann, Executive Director, Drug Policy Alliance; Tucker Carlson, Editor-in-Chief, Daily Caller

Unfortunately, my work schedule makes trips to either coast completely impossible right now, or I’d be trying to do one or both.

If there’s anybody who is attending either conference and is interested in sharing reactions and reports with our readers here, please let me know.

    Pete, interesting information on an attempt to evaluate cannabis as a symptom treatment for PTSD seems to be gaining ground. This is from Wired’s military blog.

    NO Coca nor Ibogaine panels- an absence that is indefensible.

    The “drug war” isn’t being waged for some noble goal to fight evil. Drugs are not dying, people are! People who have mothers, fathers, sisters & brothers! The drug war is killing what America stands for, families…
