Join Reason for a 4/20 Livestream on Marijuana Policy in the Trump Era

Live at 7:20 p.m. ET/4:20 p.m. PT.

Attorney General Jeff Sessions has called marijuana "only slightly less awful" than heroin. But with cannabis legal in 28 states and Washington, D.C., it's clear that federal and state drug policy is at odds. Can the Trump administration really stop marijuana legalization? How is California dealing with the uncertainty that surrounds this legal industry? What can we expect in the next four years and beyond?

Reason will livestream a discussion of present and future drug policy with four experts in the field:

Reason TV's Zach Weissmueller, who recently interviewed cannabis entrepreneurs about the future of drug policy under President Trump, will moderate the discussion.

The stream will be available on Reason's Facebook page, and we'll be taking questions from the online audience.

    Some libertarian moment. Not one panelist is smoking weed.

    I have no beef with pot legalization.

    ...but pot heads are the most irritating people on the planet. I almost want them to ramp up enforcement JUST to piss them off.


  • Fuck you, Shikha (Nunya)||

    Kinda agree. Weed isn't a hill I'm ready to die on, but I fully support anyone's want to partake. Just stop acting like lawyers and marathon runners. I don't want to constantly badgering me with your regaled stories of its awesomeness.

    It sounds like we are being criticized for our enthusiasm for marijuana legalization. It is our passion that drives the legalization movement.
