Lakes Region TEA Party – Debate: legalization of cannabis/marijuana

The Lakes Region TEA Party will meet August 21, 2019 at 7 PM at the Moultonborough Library. We will have expert advocates and opponents of legalizing marijuana for recreational use in New Hampshire (HB 481).

This event should be of interest to the general public, please spread the word about this event which is open to all and invite anyone who is interested.

Are you aware that the New Hampshire Legislature is considering legalizing recreational use of marijuana? Do you wonder what marijuana legalization would mean to you, your family, our fellow citizens, and New Hampshire? Will legalization make us safer? Will legalization reduce New Hampshire’s drug crisis? Why should marijuana use be illegal in the first place? What is the experience in states which have legalized recreational use of marijuana?

The public is invited to hear these and audience questions addressed by a panel of supporters and opponents of HB 481, the marijuana legalization bill, at the August 21, 2019, Lakes Region TEA Party meeting at 7 PM at the Moultonborough Public Library.

Current panelists include:

– Matt Simon, New England Political Director of the Marijuana Policy Project, supporting the legalization of marijuana.

– Dr. David Strang, Central NH ER Associates and Chair of the NH Prescription Drug Monitoring Program Advisory Council, opposing legalization.

– Senator Bob Giuda, NH Senate District 2, opposing legalization

– TBA, supporting legalization

The Lakes Region TEA Party meeting begins at 7 PM at the Moultonborough Library, 4 Holland Street, Moultonborough, NH. The public is invited to listen and participate respectfully in the Q&A sessions.
