Post-event interviews with Ken Wolski, Scott Gorman, and Mike Chazukow at the marijuana legalization forum at Montclair State University on April 17, 2014. Non-authorized cameras were not allowed to record. Though we were assured the full video would be made available online, I've yet to find it. (All I could locate is a brief video synopsis: wiredjersey.com/montclair-state-hosts-marijuana-legalization-debate.)

Three pro-legalization panelists + 3 anti-legalization panelists + 1 MSU moderator = a very interesting and welcome debate. Thanks to all who participated and attended—it's great to see the dialogue opening up, and in such an official setting as my very own alma mater.

(Cue the music from the movie Mannequin: "And we can build this dream forever, standing strong forever—nothing's gonna stop us, nothing's gonna stop us nooooooow.")
