NEW: Brown to Host Debate on Marijuana Legalization on April 23

Thursday, April 18, 2013

 

Brown University will host a debate on marijuana legalization on Tuesday, Apri 23.

Brown University will host a debate entitled "Is it time to legalize marijuana?" on Tuesday, April 23.

Hosted by the Janus Forum and Brown Students for Sensible Drug Policy, the debate will feature Kevin Sabet, board member Project SAM (Smart Approaches to Marijuana), a "quarterback" of the anti-marijuana movement, and Aaron Houston, national director of Students for Sensible Drug Policy.  

Colorado and Washington recently passed voter initiatives to make the sale and cultivation of marijuana a legally regulated industry.  As marijuana legalization is being considered by lawmakers in Rhode Island and nationally, two sides will argue for and against more liberalized marijuana laws.

The debate will take place in Brown University's List Art Building (68 College Street) in Room 120 at 4:30 P.M. 

Contact Jared Moffat ([email protected] or 601-946-9554) to RSVP.  

Students for Sensible Drug Policy (SSDP) is the only international network of students dedicated to ending the war on drugs.

The Janus Forum is the student arm of Brown’s Political Theory Project which seeks to inspire open-minded debate on relevant, political, social, and economic issues. 

Project SAM is a bipartisan organization of mental health and public health professionals that seeks a middle road between incarceration and legalization.
