It's going to be sooo hard to choose which sessions to attend.  Luckily I think they record them all.  They did at the last one two years ago in NOLA.  I've listened to all of those and I feel so fortunate that i'll be able to attend this event.

FILM FESTIVAL

Screening of selection from "Health and Hope" by Gretchen Hildebrand

“Health and Hope” is the name of two new documentary-style videos produced for the New Mexico Department of Health addressing the twin epidemics of opiate addiction and hepatitis C in the state’s jails and prisons.



Told through the stories of currently and formerly incarcerated people, and shot on location in New Mexico’s correction  and public health systems, these videos explore the challenges of addiction for incarcerated people, give information about treatments such as methadone and suboxone, educate about hepatitis C transmission and treatment, and offer a critical message of hope to those on the inside.

Screening of "10 Rules for Dealing With Police" by Steve Silverman

From the creators of the classic, BUSTED: The Citizen’s Guide to Surviving Police Encounters (2003), Flex Your Rights premiers its new achievement, 10 Rules for Dealing with Police. The 40-minute educational drama is the most sophisticated and entertaining film of its kind. Narrated by the legendary trial lawyer and LEAP member William "Billy" Murphy, Jr. (from HBO’s The Wire), 10 Rules depicts innocent people dealing with heavy-handed drug war policing tactics used every day in the United States. The film was made possible with generous funding from the Drug Policy Alliance and the Marijuana Policy.

Ending Marijuana Prohibition [panel] (back to top)

We are at a defining moment in the decades-long struggle to end marijuana prohibition, as the shift in public opinion toward making marijuana legal accelerates. Have we reached the tipping point? How will we transform this opportunity into real change? Is this opening different from those of the past? Could an economic recovery undermine our progress? Where will marijuana prohibition fall first?

I believe he did work on both of those.  He's done a lot for the reform movement over the years.  They have posted the archive for the conference this past november.  I suggest everyone take a look at the material. 

This is a slideshow of pictures from the conference.  There's some interesting pics on there:

This was a really great session and was the last one of the conference.  At the end of the Q & A Richard Lee's mom and dad both made some comments about how they were prohibitionists then saw the powerfully positive effect cannabis has had on Richard's life and they switched sides and now help the advocating even tho they are both like 80 or 90 i cant recall.  But that was a great moment for sure.  the Q&A session kinda focused on the policy making process though.  Here's a video of it:
