drug policy reform (2.26) Ethan Nadelmann, founder and executive director of the Drug Policy Alliance will be the featured speaker at “Drug Policy Reform in the Americas: A Remarkable Turn of Events” Tuesday at the Watson Institute.

The multi-decade drug war consensus is crumbling.  Latin American presidents are talking openly about decriminalization and even legal regulation of illegal drugs.  Voters in Colorado and Washington State recently approved historic ballot measures to legally regulate marijuana like alcohol.  The rapid pace of reform is catching everyone by surprise.  Why is this happening? And where is this going?

Noon, Tuesday, February 26, Watson Institute, 111 Thayer Street
