While things feel pretty normal here at The Glass House, things are shaking up in Denver, Colorado this week. The 2013 International Drug Policy Conference is taking place from Wednesday, October 23 through Saturday, October 26, with over 1,000 attendees representing 30 different countries.
The International Drug Policy Conference is a biennial event hosted by the Drug Policy Alliance and several partner organizations with the goal of bringing together people from around the world who believe the war on drugs is doing more harm than good.
This year attendees will have the opportunity to spend three days interacting with people committed to finding alternatives to the war on drugs while participating in sessions given by leading experts from around the world.
What kind of people attend the conference? Anyone from students and activists to elected officials and public health advocates. Presentations cover a variety of topics, and attendees can even choose a “track” of presentations that fit their specific interests. These tracks include criminal justice, marijuana reform, health and harm reduction, movement building, international drug issues, psychedelics, academic/scholarly work, cultural and crossover issues, and training.
We’re excited to hear what new ideas and innovations emerge from this conference! In the meantime, you can check out the audio and video of past presentations from the conference archives.
