One of the best times I've ever had was at the 2012 Students for Sensible Drug Policy Conference, which was held in Denver. Another conference is coming up. I suggest you attend if you are able. Below are more details, via the event's Facebook page:
The next SSDP conference will take place April 15-17, 2016 at the Holiday Inn Rosslyn, just minutes outside of Washington, DC.
***SSDP is working with our global allies to advocate for a sensible approach to drug policy at the United Nations General Assembly Special Session on the World Drug Problem, taking place in New York City April 19-21. Stay tuned for details, and plan to join us in New York April 19!***

For the past decade, we've hosted our conference biennially, but starting in 2016, we're excited to announce that we're switching to an annual Spring conference schedule! During these extraordinary three-day events, the SSDP network comes together to celebrate, learn, connect, and advocate at the SSDP Conference.
Next spring, SSDP2016 will bring more than 400 student members, alumni, and supporters to Washington, DC for our largest-ever gathering featuring:
- Educational programming. The core conference program will include prominent keynote speakers and panels addressing the hottest topics in policy, harm reduction, leadership, organizing, and advocacy.
- Awards Ceremony + Dance Party. SSDP recognizes outstanding network members with an annual awards ceremony followed by a dance party.
- Student Congress. Our annual student board member election and governing resolution process invites all SSDP members to participate in defining their SSDP.
-And more. An alumni gathering, regional meetups, networking meals, and other events offer nearly non-stop opportunities to connect with advocates and leaders of the drug policy reform movement!
