SEMINOLE – The controversial issue of legalizing medical marijuana will be debated at the next Village Square program of the Institute for Strategic Policy Solutions at St. Petersburg College.

The program, titled “Medical Marijuana: Is Florida Going to Pot?,” will be from 6 to 8:15 p.m., Thursday, April 17, in the Conference Center of the Seminole Campus, 9200 113th St. N.

A distinguished panel will debate the issue. Speaking for the amendment will be Ben Pollara, campaign manager for United For Care, the organization behind the initiative petition campaign. Speaking against will be Carlton E. Turner, former assistant to the president and director of the White House Drug Abuse Policy Office, and the “Drug Czar” under President Ronald Reagan.

Presenting the point of view of law enforcement will be Bob Gualtieri, sheriff of Pinellas County.

Moderator will be Craig Kopp, news anchor and host of “All Things Considered” on WUSF NPR Radio.

Advance reservations for this dinner event are required. The program is co-sponsored by the Tampa Bay Times and WEDU Television.

The Village Square is a forum for non-partisan debate of key state and national issues that operates under the Institute for Strategic Policy Solutions at SPC. The Institute serves as a resource for academic enrichment, a non-partisan venue for civil debate and civic engagement.
