Washington, DC: NORML is still accepting registrations to attend its 2011 national conference, taking place next week – April 21 through April 23 – at the Grand Hyatt Hotel in Denver, Colorado, one of America’s premier ‘pot friendly’ cities.
Panel discussions and plenary speeches at this year’s conference, which celebrates the 40-year-anniversary of NORML’s founding, will include:
- Pot-n-Politics: 2011-2012 Marijuana Initiatives;
- Cannabis Commerce: Coming of Age;
- NORML Women’s Alliance: Closing The Cannabis Gender Gap;
- Medical Marijuana: More Than Just THC;
- Medibles: Cannabis & Cooking;
- NORML at 40-Years-Old;
- Marijuana and Safety: Real Myths, Real Concerns;
- The Feds, Marijuana, and You;
- Marijuana Nation: The Statistics of Cannabis and its Consumers
This year’s keynote speaker is United States Congressman Jared Polis, a Democrat from Colorado’s second congressional district. In an interview conducted last week with CBS News, Congressman Polis called for an end to federal interference in marijuana policy and acknowledged that the passage of statewide medical cannabis legislation has "created thousands of jobs" and "several millions of dollars of tax revenue."
On Day 1 of the Conference, NORML will host a debate among Denver’s leading mayoral candidates. Former television talk-show host and medical cannabis advocate Montel Williams will moderate the debate.
NORML invites the public to join hundreds of likeminded marijuana law reformers at the nation’s only annual conference dedicated to ending cannabis prohibition.
Online registration, as well as further details regarding conference speakers, agenda, and social events, is available at: http://www.norml.org/conference.
