TEN presents Legalize It?: The Debate on Marijuana Legalization

Posted on 4/22/2016 5:39:14 PM

The Entertainment Network (TEN) invites you to Legalize It?: The Debate on Marijuana Legalization, on Monday, April 25, in the HUB Ohio Room. Doors will open at 6:00 p.m. and the event will begin at 7:00 p.m. This should prove to be an academically meaningful event for all members of the IUP campus community, and quite relevant given Governor Wolf’s signature on PA Senate Bill 3, which legalizes the use of marijuana for medical purposes in the Commonwealth.

We are happy to bring two policy experts on this particular topic to the debate stage: Mr. Aaron Houston and Dr. Kevin Sabet. Houston co-founded Marijuana Majority, is a nationally recognized expert on drug policy and marijuana law, and currently serves as a strategist for Ghost Group, a private equity company that owns marijuana-related technology companies. Sabet is a former three-time White House drug policy advisor, and currently serves as the Director of Smart Approaches to Marijuana (SAM) and the Director of the Drug Policy Institute at the University of Florida, where he also serves as an Assistant Professor in its College of Medicine.

This is a FREE event, and is open to the entire IUP campus community. We will provide attendance vouchers to all individuals at the event. Please encourage your colleagues and students to attend this informative and timely event!
