UConn SSDP will be meeting tonight at 8pm in Monteith 221
The above image is something we like to call ‘Drug Fallacy Bingo’. Next time you’re arguing with a prohibitionist, why not make a game of it? Or just use it as a cheat sheet to prepare for a discourse about drug policy - we don’t care how you use it, as long as you get the message behind it!
This graphic will be appearing in The Drug War issue of the UConn Free Press, so be sure to support them and pick up a copy when you’re around campus!
We’ve got a ton going on this week (including UConnabis planning)
Check out our weekly updates here
Hope to see you tonight!
TONIGHT AT 7:30 folks! Be there!
Here’s the facebook event for more details if you’d like them.
Wanna see ^this guy^ speak about legalizing marijuana?
For those of you who don’t know, that man is Ethan Nadelmann. He’s the executive director of the Drug Policy Alliance and the foremost figure in pushing for both Global and American drug policy reform.
AND UConn SSDP is bringing him to campus for FREE
So come check him out!
February 26th at 7:30pm in Laurel Hall Room 102 on the UConn Storrs Campus
Simply put. This is one of the best documentaries on the failed War on Drugs to be put out there. Narrated by Morgan Freeman, this film really sheds some light on the changing opinions of some of the world’s most prominent political figures in regards to the failed drug war.
If you’ve got an hour to kill when you are taking a break from studying this week, UConn SSDP recommends you spend it watching Breaking The Taboo
Good luck on finals to all of you!
The walls of prohibition are crumbling!
Brown SSDP is doing a great job of hosting everyone here in Providence for the weekend. They’ve brought in a myriad of great speakers who we’ll be discussing in next Thursday’s meeting and on the UConn SSDP blog, so keep an eye here and come to the meetings to stay updated
Continuing a year of unprecedented accomplishments (Helping pass a decriminalization and good samaritan bill in Connecticut, equalizing campus marijuana policies, taking over the UConn student government, attending the 2011 DPA conference, and bringing 13 chapter members across the country to Denver for SSDP 2012), UConn’s chapter was given the Campus Change Award in honor of it’s recent feats. In addition to this award, UConn had two chapter members, Sam Tracy and Jason Ortiz, elected to the SSDP Board of Directors.
The work done up to this point isn’t over just yet as the chapter is continuing to lobby for the medicalization of cannabis to pass this year as well as furthering efforts to diversify the chapter with events like ‘The New Jim Crow: Racism in the Drug War’. Keep any eye out for UConn on this year’s High Times list of top marijuana activist schools, as they should finally (and deservedly) crack the top 5.
