Chat about marijuana legalization Monday at noon

Alison Holcomb

Join representatives from two sides of the marijuana legalization debate next Monday, Aug. 20, at noon, to talk about the pros and cons of Initiative 502, moderated by The Seattle Times political team. I-502 is on the November ballot. It would legalize, regulate and tax recreational marijuana use.

Kevin Sabet

Participants include Alison Holcomb, drug policy director for the ACLU of Washington, currently on loan to the I-502 campaign. She has served on the King County Bar Association’s Drug Policy Project, and the Seattle City Council’s Marijuana Policy Review Panel and Jail Capacity Study Advisory Group.

Also joining us is Kevin Sabet, the former senior adviser to Director Gil Kerlikowske (former chief of Seattle police) of the White House Office of National Drug Control Policy. Sabet is currently an assistant professor in the College of Medicine at the University of Florida and a senior consultant to the UN and grassroots organizations.

Feel free to send questions in advance to jmartin@seattletimes.com or jbalter@seattletimes.com.
