About Us

Since 2014 a group of educators and students have revolutionized the previously disruptive 4/20 "smoke-out" (and later lockdown) on our campus by creating original public education forums to address a diversity of issues related to cannabis and psychedelic science, cultural history, legislation, entrepreneurship, medicines, and therapies in the interest of public health, safety, and liberty. This year students and the public will benefit from informed and illuminating discourse as experts from academia, industry, medicine, policy, and law gather in the Wolf Law Wittemyer Courtroom and Boettcher Hall, and on Zoom

The symposium is organized by Dr. Caroline Conzelman and sponsored by the Psychedelic Club, CannaBuffs, Students for Sensible Drug Policy, and the Global Studies Residential Academic Program (all at CU Boulder).
