Now that Connecticut has legalized the medical use of marijuana, a forum on the issue is being held at West Conn.
"Pot or Not: A debate on the future of marijuana in Connecticut" will be moderated by a state lawmaker and be between a doctor and an advocate of the legalization. Darien state Representative Terrie Wood served on the Regulations Review Committee for Medical Marijuana. The debate is being hosted by Danbury-based Midwestern Connecticut Council of Alcoholism.
Dr. Jeffrey Reynolds is executive director of the Long Island Council of Alcoholism and Drug Dependence. Erik Williams played a leading role in drafting the medical marijuana bill.
With the decriminalization of small amounts of marijuana and implementation of medicinal marijuana, some have questioned if Connecticut will join states like Colorado in legalizing marijuana for use by adults.
The debate in Ives Concert Hall in White Hall on West Conn's midtown Campus is Wednesday at 7pm.
