Panel Discussion on the Drug Trade SATURDAY, 1:30 AM, TCA
PANEL DISCUSSION WILL BEGIN IMMEDIATELY FOLLOWING COCA MAMA
Who has and who now controls the drug trade? What effects do the attempts to eradicate drug production in the field have on indigenous people? How are their lives altered by the policy of the developed countries to attack the problem overseas rather than at home? What price do poor farmers pay when third world governments accept funding for fumigation and destruction of crops? How has the 'north's' demand for refined forms of drugs affected the traditional use of the raw substance in the 'south'? These questions will be examined through a comprehensive series of documentary films and open panel discussions with: New Mexico Governor Gary Johnson; Sanho Tree, an expert on drug policy and Fellow of the Institute for Policy Studies; Sally Denton, author of the Blue Grass Conspiracy; and a representative of the Drug Enforcement Agency.

Warren Harding Memorial SUNDAY, 8:15 PM, PLAZA THEATER
Last year's Guest of Honor, Warren Harding delighted us with his iconoclastic humor. His legendary energy was still evident as he rocked his wheel chair on the dance floor at midnight. Warren is gone, but we celebrate his memory with a memorial of film, anecdote and prose from his companions on the rope: Robbins, Frost, Denny, McCracken, Derryberry and Whitmore; and many others who admired him from near and afar.
