from Stephen Palubinsky, LP Social Media Development Assistant
On Saturday March 19th, several LP representatives attended the Students for Sensible Drug Policy Conference held on the grounds of the University of Maryland – College Park. Approximately 400 passionate students attended the conference in order to learn more about the failed War on Drugs. These students attended lobbying workshops and listened to a wide array of speakers including former New Mexican Governor Gary Johnson.
The LP felt that it was important to set up a table and interact with the great individuals that trekked across the nation to get to this event. Most importantly, we were able to reach out to many students who were unaware that the LP actively advocates for the legalization of all drugs on the basis of personal liberty and economic principles. Many attendees took the world’s smallest political quiz and interacted with our volunteers in order to learn more about libertarian philosophy.
