PyCon's response to an inapropriate incident on March 16th

On Saturday night we recieved several reports that an attendee was using an illicit substance during a scheduled event at PyCon. This is illegal, and runs directly counter the family-friendly environment we ask attendees to help us create.

We spoke to the attendee in question and informed them that their behavior showed poor judgement and was inappropriate and unacceptable at PyCon. They were expelled from PyCon 2013, and will not be allowed to attend PyCon US in 2014 or 2015.

If anyone has additional questions or concerns about this event or these sanctions, please contact Jacob Kaplan-Moss at <jacob@jacobian.org>.
