Canadian Students For Sensible Drug Policy (CSSDP) will be hosting its 7th Annual National Conference, “A Rising Revolution: Drug Policy Reform Around the Globe.” The CSSDP Annual National Conference is the only national drug policy conference in Canada. In conjunction with the Toronto CSSDP Chapter, this interdisciplinary event will provide a platform for youth, students, researchers, service providers, people who use drugs, and allies to share ideas, exchange knowledge, and organise for future actions.
A Rising Revolution will discuss alternatives to prohibition including decriminalisation, legalisation, and regulation. There will also be a focus on evidence-based public health solutions, such as pragmatic harm reduction and treatment approaches. Some topics that will be covered during the conference include global drug policy reform, the international drug control regime (including the upcoming United Nations Special Session on Drugs in 2016), cannabis legalisation and medicinal use, nightlife harm reduction, and studies of the use of psychedelic drugs in medicine.
