Know Drugs and open Democracy are hosting an event which starts beyond the ‘should we / shouldn’t we legalize drugs’ debate and starts to go more deeply into what the real problems, solutions, pros and cons of ending Prohibition might be. A day of talks is taking place on Saturday September 17th in London. We have speakers from the Drug Policy Alliance, Transform, Release, Harm Reduction International and INPUD on the bill (among others). You can see further details at http://postprohibitionworld.eventbrite.com/

There are three sessions of talks and the first one begins at 10am. Francis’s session begins at 13.30 and lasts until 15.15.

The session currently comprises the following:
