The International Drug Policy Reform Conference will be held in Albuquerque, New Mexico on November 12-14. The conference was held in Albuquerque in 2001. It returns because the presumably New Mexico is a "beacon of reform" because of its innovative Good Samaritan laws passed to prevent fatal overdose, and its medical marijuana initiatives.
There will be a variety of drug law reform advocates including doctors, lawyers, activists, educators and law enforcement. Much of the discussion will center on the recent tide of support for the legalization and regulation of marijuana.
