DRCNet will soon announce the first two events in our international conference series, "Out from the Shadows: Ending Drug Prohibition in the 21st Century." We hope to have exact dates and locations confirmed within two weeks, but in the meantime want to let interested parties know that they will probably be in Brussels, Belgium in the fall and Merida, Yucatan, Mexico in February. Send an e-mail to [email protected] to receive a formal announcement, or just keep reading DRCNet! (Groups in Latin America should also be aware of the availability of drug reform funding from the Tides Foundation, proposals due on the 24th of this month -- see below.)
