POT TV – Canadian Students For Sensible Drug Policy (CSSDP) will be hosting its 7th Annual National Conference, “A Rising Revolution: Drug Policy Reform Around the Globe,” from Friday, February 27 to Sunday, March 1, 2015 in Toronto, Canada. Explore Toronto’s tantalizing cannabis culture with its most colorful commentators Amy Anonymous and Matt Mernagh. Tour participants will celebrate and engage in Toronto’s rich, but somewhat forgotten history and lore. Canadian Students for Sensible Drug Policy registrants will create another page in Toronto’s cannabis culture with advocates Marc Emery, Jodie Emery and Dana Larsen onboard. In case you can’t turn up live, tune in and watch what happens as The Mernahuana Zone producer Chris Goodwin will demonstrate his marijuana media activism by webcasting the event. Friday 2:00 PM-6:00 PM Cannabus Tour.
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 organize for future actions. A Rising Revolution will discuss alternatives to prohibition including decriminalization, legalization, 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 Nation Special Session on Drugs in 2016), cannabis legalization and medicinal use, nightlife harm reduction, and studies of the use of psychedelic drugs in medicine.
