The War on Drugs Today

Wednesday, April 4, 2012 • 12:15 PM • Law School 4047Duke Law Events

Join distinguished Baltimore attorney George Liebmann and concerned faculty, students and staff in a lunch-time session to discuss the end of the War on Drugs. Mr. Liebmann, Executive Director of the Calvert Institute in Baltimore and sometime Fellow at Cambridge University, is widely engaged in working for law reform. Whether you are worried about racial justice and the disproportionate rate of incarceration of minorities, the violence of the drug trade internationally, environmental destruction from unregulated marijuana fields, the lack of opportunity for local entrepreneurship in crime-ridden neighborhoods, the havoc that incarceration wreaks on families, or the troubling authority the DEA has to interfere with doctor-patient relationships, you have a reason to engage with this issue. This event is sponsored by the Health Law Society. For more information contact Lauren Bugg at lauren.bugg@duke.edu or Caryn Devins at caryn.devins@duke.edu.
