Canvassing for Opinion - aka "Blairs Brain on Cannabis"

IMHO prohibition sentiment requires inherent addiction to status quo, an incapacity to visualise beyond the here and now and a desperate desire to know others might feel the same... Reform is not revolutionary, rather it is evolutionary. Having survived banging your head against a brick wall the evolutionist relishes having stopped. / Blair

Cliff Thornton will tour four countries while in Europe

DRUG PEACE DAYS IN VIENNA
The new version of the programme of the Drug Peace Days that are organised by ENCOD on 7, 8 and 9 March in Vienna is now available on http://www.encod.org/info/VIENNA-2008-TEN-YEARS-AFTER.html

The days will include a Drug Peace March on 7 March to the Vienna International Centre, seat of the UN Office on Drugs and Crime, where from Monday 10 March onwards, the UN Commission on Narcotic Drugs will have its 51. annual meeting. In this meeting, the CND will start its "year of reflection" on the results of the 10 global strategy to "significantly reduce the supply and demand for illicit drugs", agreed upon in 1998 in New York. We intend to give them something to reflect about.

In the Conference that will be held in Vienna University on 8 & 9 March prominent US drug policy reformers such as Clifford Thornton, and Peter Webster will intervene, next to drug policy experts and activists from Europe and South America.. Cliff Thornton will also journey to Germany, France and Italy for presentations with elected Green Party officials and conferences in those countries.
The programme FLARE and all its participants www.flareprogramme.org(about 200 young people coming from more than twenty different countries, more than 40 organizations) will gather again for the third time in Italy, in the city of Bari, from 11 to 16 of March 2008, just after the Vienna meeting! I would really like to invite Mr Thorntorn will be in the city of Bari (southerm Italy) on March 12th to hold a seminar upon alternative solution to drug trafficking.

For those of you who wish to make the trip to Vienna, you can find information on hotel accomodation on our website. If you need any assistance, please do not hesitate to contact me.

Best wishes,
