How about a debate between the Chief Cop and the Top Marijuana Advocate.?
How about El Paso County Sheriff Terry Maketa against Amendent 64 author Mason Tvert.?
That will happen Monday, Oct 1 at 6pm at UCCS and the public is welcome.
Regulating Marijuana Like Alcohol is a hot issue on the Novemeber ballots. Some people want the tax money, others want less crime and the end of street corner sales, others want cheaper pot and an end to police harassment. Raphael Sassower (professor of Philosophy at UCCS) will be moderating. YAL is cosponsoring with food and beverage. It will be in the Upper Lodge room at the west end the campus. ( directions below)
