Held in New Orleans.
I am in need of a 1997 Drug Policy Foundation (DPF) conference schedule to scan.
The 1997 conference was the last of the continuous annual DPF conferences held since 1987, skipping 1998, then annually in 1999, 2000 and 2001- that last year as the merged Lindesmith Institute-Drug Policy Foundation. The Lindesmith Institute had been created in 1994 by Ethan Nadelmann with the financial backing of George Soros.
Since this merger, these conferences have been held once every two years as the 'Drug Policy Alliance' in 2003, 2005, 2007, 2009 and 2011.
Rejected by the Drug Policy Foundation- 1997:
