Pathway to Reform confirms global key note speakers
International drug policy symposium 'PATHWAY TO REFORM' has confirmed the last three key note speakers that will appear at the Auckland event on March 20th next month.
Dr. Brian Emerson (CANADA), Fiona Patten (AUSTRALIA) and Rick Doblin Ph.D (USA) round out the list of international experts speaking at the symposium. They join Amanda Feilding and Ethan Nadelmann on the line up. They will also participate in a panel discussion MC’ed by political and media commentator, Martyn Bradbury.
New Zealand has been in the global spotlight as a progressive force in drug reform due to the recent passing of its Psychoactive Substances Act 2013. Because of this, our government has received international recognition for its innovative solution to an issue that is affecting countries all over the world.
“Having so many experts and industry leaders coming to New Zealand for this symposium is a clear signal that the world is watching and hoping that regulation of psychoactive products is the way forward,” said Grant Hall, General Manager at The STAR Trust who is hosting the symposium.
With only six weeks to go, the event to be held at The Nathan Club in Auckland’s CBD promises to be a historic day for drug policy reformers.
