Ethan Nadelmann’s Visionary Speech on How Society Should Deal with Drug Use

Ethan Nadelmann’s Visionary Speech on How Society Should Deal with Drug Use

NEW YORK—(ENEWSPF)—October 11, 2013. Editor’s Note: We’d like to thank Tony Newman for providing us with this article for reprint.

Why are some drugs legal and others illegal? Who are the people who make up the drug policy reform movement? What can be done about the violence in Mexico from the drug trade? How should society deal with heroin, cocaine and other illicit drugs?

Ethan Nadelmann, executive director of the Drug Policy Alliance, gave a visionary speech where he answered all of these questions and more.

The uplifting, thought provoking and often humorous talk was given at the prestigious Nantucket Project two weeks ago where fellow speakers and audience members included former U.S. Treasury Secretary Larry Summers, three-time Tour de France Winner Greg LeMond, writer Michael Pollan, and former AOL.com CEO Steve Case.

Watch Ethan Nadelmann’s speech and you will see why Rolling Stone in their profile last summer dubbed Ethan “The Real Drug Czar” and “The Pot Movement’s Power Broker”.
