Healthcare Legal Issues Take the Stage at PAINWeek 2009
Date:9/11/2009

Jennifer Bolen, JD, Presents Mock Trial and Ethan Nadelmann, PhD, JD, is Keynote Speaker on the Failed War on Drugs

Las Vegas, NV (PRWEB) September 11, 2009 -- PAINWeek® 2009, the national conference for frontline practitioners, will feature Ethan Nadelmann, founder of the Drug Policy Alliance advocating for drug reform in the United States as keynote speaker former Assistant US Attorney Jennifer Bolen, JD, presenting a Mock Trial (US vs Pain Clinician), and the controversial for its annual healthcare conference meeting September 9-12 at the Red Rock Casino, Resort, and Spa in Las Vegas, Nevada. PAINWeek is the premiere conference for healthcare practitioners in the United States, this year welcoming over 1000 clinicians who research and treat pain to over 75 session-hours for CME/CE credit, 40+ exhibitors, 65 abstract presentations, corporate-sponsored and satellite symposia, master classes, and special sessions.

Ethan Nadelmann, PhD, JD, who earned his BA, PhD, and JD at Harvard and a Master's degree in International Relations from the London School of Economics, is founder and director of the Drug Policy Alliance (DPA), the leading organization in the US promoting alternatives to the war on drugs. The DPA advocates for drug policies grounded in science, compassion, health, and human rights. The US war on drugs is not only not working, it's a disaster, believes Nadelmann. The US government has spent hundreds of billions of tax dollars trying to make America "drug-free," and yet heroin, cocaine, methamphetamine, and other illicit drugs are cheaper, purer, and easier to get than ever before. Nearly half a million people in the US are behind bars on drug charges--that's twice the number that all of western Europe, with a larger population, incarcerates for all offenses. Drug abuse is bad, contends Nadelmann, but the drug war is worse.

Jennifer Bolen, JD, knows all too
