Apart from being one of my more recent THR heroes, Ethan Nadelmann has been one of the most outspoken critics of the current ‘War on Drugs’. Rolling Stone Magazine called him “The driving force for the legalization of marijuana in America” he has been defending cannabis and drugs his entire career. He is also the founder of Drug Policy Alliance, a New York City based non-profit. Their goal is to “reduce the harms of both drug use and drug prohibition, and to promote the sovereignty of individuals over their minds and bodies”.
Ethan Nadelmann has turned his attention to defending vapers and vaping in general. This is his keynote speech from the recent 2021 virtual EcigSummit.
It’s people like Ethan Nadelmann who give me confidence that not only are we absolutely on the correct side of this debate, but that science and vaping will absolutely win and save a billion lives.
Feel free to follow Ethan on Twitter as well. He posts a lot of great tobacco harm reduction related news science and commentary, but also general drug harm reduction related news, science and commentary.
