The mission of this forum is to educate and discuss some of the impacts current drug policies have on individuals and our communities. We will also discuss current legislative measures that would mitigate the effects of drug prohibition and offer practical, sensible alternatives to our failed approaches. This event is free and open to the public.
Those with illnesses who benefit from medical cannabis, police officers and innocent bystanders who fall victim to preventable violence, and communities of color are adversely and disproportionately affected by prohibition.
This forum is an opportunity for people like you to raise concerns and ask questions about the marijuana regulatory legislation in our home state. We highly encourage positive discourse, as it will help bring us closer to solutions.
Cost: This event is free and open to the public
Parking: Free parking is available at the community center and the adjacent elementary school
