Drugs, Not Hugs (Special Drug Policy Conference Edition)


Reason is proud to be a sponsor of the 2005 International Drug Policy Reform Conference, November 10-12, in Long Beach California.

From the site of the conference's organizer, Drug Policy Alliance:

This coming November, more than 1,000 people from across the country and around the world will gather to learn more about drug policy reform issues. No better opportunity exists to strategize and mobilize for reform….

Who should attend? Anyone who believes the war on drugs is doing more harm than good! The diversity and expertise of our audience is what will make this conference a success. If you are a community activist, elected official, criminal justice professional or reform advocate, public health administrator, health care or drug treatment professional, educator, student, person in recovery, or a family member or friend of a drug war prisoner this conference is for you! We plan to apply for Continuing Education Units for counselors, social workers, attorneys and physicians. If you would like to be placed on our mailing list to receive a conference brochure, email DPA@KessJones.com or call 1-888-361-6338.
