2009 International Drug Policy Reform Conference

Albuquerque, New Mexico
November 12-14, 2009

The biennial conference of the Drug Policy Alliance

If you're committed to bringing about drug policies based on science, compassion, health and human rights, if you're working in any area of drug policy reform, or want to be, you have to be part of this conversation. There is no better crash course in drug policy than this three-day event.

A special note for Canadians: This is the only conference on the continent that provides Canadians a place to discuss Drug Policy in an informative and supportive environment.

Along with many great opportunities for informal networking, there will be a meeting of Canadian delegates, where you will be able to discuss and strategise about how to address the refusal of our current government to treat the full range of drug-related issues in ways which embrace harm reduction, human rights and sensible, effective and evidence-based policies. And you will also hear about the Canadian Drug Policy Consortium - an important new activist organisation.
