Reformers aren't getting much rest these days. After the NORML conference last weekend in Washington, DC, and the North American Syringe Exchange Convention going on right now in Minneapolis, the action continues.

Today and tomorrow (April 27th & 28th), the National Lawyers Guild Detroit chapter is hosting "Beyond the War on Drugs: Why it Failed. What it Cost. What Now?"

This weekend (April 28th & 29th), the University of Wisconsin-Madison chapter of Students for Sensible Drug Policy is convening "Illuminating Reality: Social, Intellectual, Economic, and Faith Based Approaches to the War on Drugs in the 21st Century."

And coming up on May 4th, Hampshire College SSDP will host "Financial Aid and the Higher Education Act Drug Provision" in beautiful Amherst, Massachusetts, a day of presentations by student activists, financial aid professionals and Hampshire's President, concluding with a ceremonial signing of the HEA reform resolution.

Of course, "Drug Policies for the New Millennium" will meet in Albuquerque, New Mexico from May 30th to June 2nd, the largest annual international drug policy reform conference. See our Reformer's Calendar below for information on all of the above.
