An excellent group of speakers including Fernando Henrique Cardoso, Former President, Brazil; Jorge CastaÃ±eda, 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.
