Science and Policy Recommendations for the Biden Administration


Marijuana and Social Justice

We believe marijuana policy should reflect true social justice for all communities.

Registration is now open for the 2023 SAM Summit & Good Drug Policy Conference.

The 2023 conference will be held on April 20th in Washington, DC at the historic Miracle Theatre. We will bring together powerful voices in drug policy from across the field, such as prevention, treatment, recovery, and law enforcement experts to amplify our collective work to scale up the work of scientists and practitioners. We’ve invited current and former staff who served Presidential administrations as well as Members of Congress.

This is the perfect option for groups associated with non-profit organizations, corporations, healthcare, clinicians, social workers, counselors, schools, law enforcement and local community groups around the country who want to educate their communities and employees on all issues surrounding drugs and drug policy. We go beyond slogans and clichés to give you a data-driven and tested approach to understanding these critical issues.

Take advantage of our early bird registration at $249 per person. Registration price will be raised to $299 on February 15th. Cost to attend includes lunch. Full agenda to be announced.
