After five days of being surrounded with over 1,000 like-minded drug policy reformers at the 2009 Drug Policy Alliance conference, it’s easy to forget that the entire world isn’t filled with people who accept the beauties of logic and reasoning when talking about drug policy. If you haven’t seen it yet, check out Ethan Nadelmann, Drug Policy Alliance’s Executive Director, making his opening speech at the conference. Ethan Nadelmann: “Right now the wind is at our back” from Hungarian Civil Liberties Union on Vimeo. I’m not sure if anyone’s talented enough to put into words how inspiring a conference like this one is, but to say the least, I’m counting down to SSDP’s 2010 International Conference.
