Harvard Drug Conference/Debate to Take Place
May 21st

The date of the Harvard Drug Conference/Debate has finally been set, to May 21st. Email volunteers were extremely helpful in helping us get the mailing list together. I'm sorry to say that the Surgeon General has cancelled her appearance. But the conference is still looking to be a major event. Drug Czar Lee Brown will give the keynote address, and C-Span will probably be broadcasting the whole show. Following is the latest version of the program:
