NORML's 2008 Conference -- Just Announced Ray Manzarek!

Washington, DC: NORML's 37th annual national conference, “It's Not Your Parents' Prohibition,” takes place this week - on Friday, October 17 and Saturday, October 18 - at the Doubletree Hotel & Executive Meeting Center in Berkeley, California. Join NORML's staff and Board of Directors - and nearly 500 policy activists, medical patients, cultivators, doctors, politicians, and clinical investigators - as we congregate and celebrate in one of America's most 'cannabis friendly' cities.

Detailed conference agenda, speakers list, and information on conference social events - including Saturday night's 'can't miss' 2008 Extravaganja party at the Oasis Nightclub (which will feature fire dancers, live performances by Los Marijuanos and the Extra Action Marching Band, and a laser light show) - are available online.

Rooms at the Doubletree Hotel are sold out, but alternative hotel accommodations are still available. Online registration for the Conference via NORML's website is available until midnight (Pacific), October 14. On site registration will available throughout the Conference. Day passes will also be available for purchase at the registration desk.

Featured guests at this year's conference include longtime Democrat Berkeley City Councilman Kriss Worthington, former Doors keyboardist and author Ray Manzarek, and Saturday Keynote Luncheon Speaker, Assemblyman Mark Leno (D-San Francisco).

Plenary sessions at this year's conference include:

o Getting the Story Wrong: How the Media Lie About Cannabis
o The Legal Marijuana Generation: Growing Up and Raising Children In The Age of Legal Pot
o The War On Pot Is a War On Young People
o What If We Arrested 20 Million Americans, And Nobody Noticed?
o The Politics of Marijuana And Health
o Drug Testing and Cannabis: The Case Against Legally Sanctioned Discrimination Via Forensics
o Pot Culture: A Roundtable Discussion of Cannabis in Society, Entertainment, Music and American Culture
o Pot Politics 2008 and Beyond

In addition, on Sunday, October 19, NORML's Legal Committee and the faculty of Oaksterdam University will co-sponsor a special, third-day session, entitled “Everything You Wanted To Know About The Legalities Medical Cannabis, But Didn't Know Where To Ask.
” This unique, one-day seminar will guide attendees through the maze of conflicting federal, state, and local medical cannabis laws and regulations, and will offer step-by-step instruction regarding how to establish a legal medical marijuana business in the state of California.

Learn from the nation's top experts on cannabis and cannabis policy. Strategize with the country's leading marijuana activists and reformers. See what cognitive freedom and tolerance looks like in Oaksterdam, the most cannabis-friendly neighborhood in North America.

Don't delay; register today and join us this week for an unforgettable three days of pot, policy, and politics at the 37th annual national NORML Conference.
