Should North Carolina join the growing list of states that have legalized marijuana for medical or recreation use? Co-panelists Perry Parks and Pat Oglesby visit Duke to discuss the personal, political, and policy dynamics of the debate. After retiring from a highly-decorated 28-year career with the U.S. military, Perry Parks discovered that cannabis far exceeded traditional pharmaceutical drugs in relieving his pain and PTSD symptoms. He became an advocate for medical marijuana legalization and now heads the North Carolina Cannabis Patient Network. Pat Oglesby is a policy expert in the area of marijuana legalization and focuses his research on taxation and regulatory issues. A former Adjunct UNC law professor, Mr. Oglesby's publications have appeared in Huffington Post, the Washington Post, and scholarly publications. He now heads a non-profit organization called the Center for New Revenue. For more information, please contact Adam Fine at email@example.com.
