  • by Allen St. Pierre, NORML Executive Director July 29, 2013

    Hello all,

    The 2013 International Drug Policy Reform Conference is fast approaching. For three days from October 23rd through October 26th attendees will have the opportunity to interact with people committed to finding alternatives to the war on drugs while participating in sessions given by leading experts from around the world. This year’s conference is taking place in Denver, Colorado, where the drug policy reform landscape has just recently changed dramatically. In 2011, the conference hosted over 1,000 people representing 30 different countries. We wish to continue this stellar record of attendance and are pleased to offer scholarship assistance to allow a diverse group of people to participate.

      My entire life has been given up to this war on drugs so that my options are limited to the sale of pot to make any decent wage. Yet every day I am forced to live in fear of what government agency will kick in my door next. The only way to end the government’s mafia type tactics is to demand our rights and give responsible alternatives to the ruin of not only those who use drugged sell drugs but the families and loved ones affected by this country’s archaic policies on drugs. The alternatives must surely be better.
