War on Drugs: R.I.P

LibertyNow, a libertarian activist group devoted to the repeal of consensual-crime statutes, is hosting a drug policy forum on Saturday, April 13, from 2 to 4 pm in Washington, DC. "War on Drugs Rest in Peace: Searching for Solutions to America's Longest War" will feature speakers from a variety of disciplines, who are seeking to change the way America deals with drugs and drug abuse. Presentations will be given by:

* Dave Fratello, Communications Director, Drug Policy Foundation -- on the state of drug policy reform in the United States and abroad

* Reverend Dr. Andrew Leigh Gunn, Clergy for Enlightened Drug Policies -- a religious perspective critical of the War on Drugs

* Dr. Jeffrey Schaler, American University -- a critique of the disease model of addiction and coerced treatment

* Ian Vasquez, Cato Institute -- on America's interventionist drug control efforts

* Arnold S. Trebach, Ph.D., Pres., Drug Policy Foundation -- moderator

The forum will be held in Anderson Formal Lounge at American University, 4400 Massachusetts Ave., NW. Appetizers will be provided following the forum.
