International Drug Policy Reform Conference in Denver next week


The first retail sale of recreational marijuana in Colorado has yet to be rung up, but the state is already reaping some convention business as a result of its groundbreaking reforms of drug laws. Next week more than a thousand elected officials, health care professionals, students, drug war veterans and policy wonks from thirty countries will descend on downtown Denver for the International Drug Policy Reform Conference — four days of panels and analysis of drug policies that will also be a celebration of Colorado’s key role in the reform movement.
Our friends at Denver Westword have more.
