An Intelligent Debate.

Mary Jane

Times, they certainly are a-changing. It was just a short while ago when The War On Drugs was a wedge issue garnering votes. Many perceptive observers believe a drastic change will occur with the legalization of Cannabis.

Is The War On Drugs being dramatically and rapidly replaced by a movement to Legalize Cannabis? Will the wide-spread acceptance of Cannabis use be a major issue in the 2016 Presidential election? In the next edition of Life Elsewhere we will present both sides of this important topic, which everyone appears to have an opinion on, yet few truly understand the facts. Join us for an intelligent debate with two experts who have opposing views.

Teresa Miller, a community volunteer for over 30 years,  decided to educate herself on the issues regarding legalizing medical marijuana. Based on statistics, studies and findings. Teresa Miller created the website RethinkPot.org, who’s slogan is, “If you don’t think legalizing marijuana will affect you…think again!”

Taking the opposing view is pre-eminent litigation attorney, Ted Corless, who has become an outspoken advocate for the legalization of Cannabis. Mr. Corless created News Munchies, a site offering “Stimulating and spicy commentary in order to find workable solutions to tomorrow’s most tenacious problems”.
