Drug Policy Conference in Denver, Epicenter of Pot Legalization


Tomorrow I fly to Denver for the 2013 International Drug Policy Reform Conference, which should be even livelier and more interesting than usual given the recent momentous changes in this area, many of which are occurring at the site of the conference (i.e., in Colorado and Denver, not at the Sheraton Downtown specifically). I will be participating in three panel discussions:

Theorizing Drugs: What Can Theory & Philosophy Teach Us About Drug Policy Reform? (Thursday at 11:30 a.m.)

What Do Psychedelics Have to Do With Drug Policy Reform? (Thursday at 4:30 p.m.)

View From the Right: Building the Libertarian and Conservative Presence in the Drug Policy Reform Movement (Friday at 4 p.m.)

You can check out the full program here.

In case you are wondering about attractions aside from the panels, note that it is legal for adults 21 or older to possess up to a ounce of marijuana in Colorado, but the recreational pot stores will not open until next year.
