Just Say Now Livestreaming Marijuana Debate Moderated by Richard Belzer at 6:30 pm ET Today

Richard Belzer

Just Say Now will be livestreaming a debate on medical marijuana today at 6:30 pm ET in Denver, Colorado. Law and Order star, stand up comic and cancer survivor Richard Belzer will moderate the debate.

Watch the marijuana debate at 6:30 pm ET here.

Belzer was diagnosed with testicular cancer in 1984, and has since made a full recovery. He will be moderating a debate at the Plant Medicine Expo and Healthcare Provider Conference in Denver Colorado between pro- and anti-medical marijuana advocates:

  • Stan Garnett, District Attorney for Colorado’s 20th Judicial District: Garret is an aggressive prosecutor and a strong advocate for Public Safety. His priorities are prosecuting violent or sexual crimes, serious drug dealing, business and economic crime and cases involving public corruption.
  • Tom Gallagher, Councilmember At-Large: Gallagher was elected to an at-large council seat in April 2003, and is a principal in Aeon Project Development.
  • Joshua Kappel, Outreach Director for Sensible Colorado: Kappel began advocating for drug policy reform in 2005 as a member of Students for Sensible Drug Policy. A graduate of the University of Denver, Sturm College of Law, he is now a clerk with Vicente Consulting, LLC, a full-service medical marijuana law firm. He also serves as volunteer outreach director for Sensible Colorado.
  • Charlie Brown, Denver City Councilman Brown currently chairs the Council’s Medical Marijuana Committee and is a member of the Government Affairs & Finance Committee and the Business, Workforce, & Sustainability Committee. He was the key sponsor of the city’s new medical marijuana ordinance that regulates this new form of controversial commerce. The ordinance was approved by Council 13-0 on January 11, 2010.

As one of the first states to struggle with the growing pains of accommodating a growing medical marijuana industry, the experience of Colorado elected officials and advocates on both sides should be interesting and informative.

This is the second in a series of live marijuana debates that Just Say Now has livestreamed. The first, a debate on Prop 19 at UC Berkeley, was broadcast on Wednesday, September 22.

Join us at 6:30 pm ET when Just Say now livestreams the debate.
