Debate: The war on drugs

Posted By on Tue, Sep 20, 2011 at 7:14 AM

This event, at 6 p.m. Wednesday at the University of Arkansas union ballroom in Fayetteville, could be interesting:

The University of Arkansas Chapter of Students for Sensible Drug Policy (SSDP), in coordination with University Programs, is hosting a debate between former Princeton Professor/Executive Director of the Drug Policy Alliance Ethan Nadelmann and former DEA Administrator/US Congressman Asa Hutchinson.

The pair will debate about whether we should continue to fight the War on Drugs or look toward an alternative approach such as legalization. Both speakers bring years of experience and knowledge to the table. Asa Hutchinson held the top position at the DEA from 2001 to 2003. Ethan Nadelmann is the leading voice and leader of the drug policy reform movement in the United States and abroad, he is currently the Executive Director of the Drug Policy Alliance.

This will be a reprise of a debate they had on CNN 11 years ago.
