There is nothing wrong with the responsible use of marijuana by adults and it should be of no interest or concern to the government. That's the underlying theme of the 2000 NORML conference, scheduled for Washington, DC on Feb. 3-5, 2000. 
The 2000 NORML Conference will feature a wide range of leaders from the world of marijuana law reform discussing the most current issues, projects, initiatives, and policy developments. You'll have the chance to spend time with old friends and colleagues from across the country, and to make new friends who share your opposition to marijuana prohibition. ACLU President Nadine Strossen will deliver the keynote speech this year; other featured speakers include author and historian Barbara Ehrenreich; Cato Executive Vice President David Boaz, and Harvard Medical School Professor Lester Grinspoon, M.D.Panels on the first day will discuss the media and the war on drugs; marijuana prohibition from the parents' perspective; race and marijuana prohibition; and environmental hazards presented by the government's "anti-marijuana fungus." The second day will be devoted largely to issues surrounding the growing threat posed by drug testing, along with a panel on the legal obstacles remaining that preclude a healthy US industrial hemp industry. The final day will include panels on the medical use of marijuana; the various positive, non-medical uses of marijuana; and ways to move towards a system of legalization.Please join us in Washington, DC and become part of the growing national network of citizens committed to ending marijuana prohibition. Help us send a strong message that it's time to stop arresting marijuana smokers.
