Yes, yes, Reason is having a happy hour celebrating our October issue tomorrow night (details here), but there's another event going on that is pretty spectacular: The world premiere of the medical marijuana documentary Waiting To Inhale and a panel featuring the Marijuana Policy Project's Rob Kampia, the Drug Policy Alliance's Ethan Nadelman, the Office of National Drug Policy Control's David Murray, and former ONDCP deputy director Andrea Barthwell. The panel discussion will be moderated by journalist Clarence Page. In short, it's one of those exceptionally rare moments when drug policy reformers and prohibitionists actually talk with each other. As such, it's an event well worth attending. Here are the details:
WHAT: Screening of "Waiting to Inhale," followed by debate on medical marijuana
WHO: Clarence Page, David Murray, Andrea Barthwell, Rob Kampia, Ethan Nadlemann
WHEN: Wednesday, Sept. 13, 7:30-9:30 p.m.
WHERE: E Street Theater, 555 11th St. NW, Washington, D.C., 202-452-7672
And here's a bonus: Some of the headliners at this event will be coming to Dragonfly after the event, so you can take in both this excellent film/panel discussion and the Reason show all in one night.
