Ethan Nadelmann invites you to New Mexico!

International Drug Policy Reform Conference 2009 Teaser

The Drug Policy Alliance (DPA) is the leading drug policy reform organization in the United States. Its bienniel International Drug Policy Reform Conferences are essential events for both activists and professionals committed to a drug policy based on justice, common sense and compassion. Two years ago the conference was held in Post-Kathrina New Orleans, it brought together over 1,000 attendees representing 25 different countries. This year the conference will take place in Albuqurque, New Mexcio – the registration is still open.

Ethan Nadelmann, the Executive Director of DPA came to Budapest a few days ago, where we asked him to speak to our camera and invite you to Albuquerque – or if you can’t come this time, mark the next conference in your calendar!

We filmed another teaser with Dr. Carl L. Hart, a professor at the Columbia University, and a Board Memeber of DPA – an excellent scientist and devoted supporter of drug policy reform.
