About the International Drug Policy Reform Conference

The Drug Policy Alliance hosts the International Drug Policy Reform Conference: the premier global gathering on drug policy reform. This three-day event features roundtable discussions, trainings and community-organized meetings on reducing the stigma of people who use drugs, treating drug use as a health rather than criminal justice issue, building support for marijuana legalization, presenting current drug research and discussing post-prohibition models for drug regulation.
 
The Drug Policy Alliance draws on the leadership of several co-host and partner organizations to help build a comprehensive conference program on ending the drug war.
 
The 2017 conference took place in Atlanta, Georgia. The 2019 conference will be held from November 6 - 9 in St. Louis, Missouri.
