April 22, 2015 - The Arizona Drug Policy Forum is presenting the 2015 Arizona Cannabis Debate from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m at Civic Space Park, 424 N. Central Ave., Phoenix, on April 29. The event is being held to stir the debate regarding cannabis and the laws that surround it in Arizona.

Throughout the country, there are many states that have legalized cannabis use not only medically, but recreationally as well. However, there are still many that are opposed to the use of cannabis and at the federal level it is still illegal, so this has sparked much debate on the topic and this event will give Arizona residents a chance to hear all sides of the issue.

The event will have several key speakers including defense attorney Marc J. Victor who will be arguing for the recreational legalization of marijuana, and Seth Leibsohn from Arizonans for Responsible Drug Policy, who will be arguing against. Brahm Resnik will moderate the event.

Everyone is invited, and the attire is business casual. Registration and tickets are required to attend the event, but the tickets are free and first-come, first-served.
