As cities continue to grapple with the ramifications of Initiative 502’s legalization of marijuana in 2012, communities across the state are looking inward to determine how it affects its men, women and children.
The voter-approved initiative legalized recreational marijuana use for adults, but it still remains illegal for teens and is technically a federal crime.
The Issaquah Community Network will explore how legal marijuana affects local adolescents with a teen forum Feb. 6 at the Liberty High School Performing Arts Center.
It begins with a teen panel from 7:30-8 p.m., followed by an audience discussion featuring special guest speaker King County Sheriff John Urquhart and Jerry Blackburn, the director of the Bellevue College Chemical Dependency Counseling Program, until 9 p.m.
One lucky attendee will receive a free iPad as a door prize courtesy of the Liberty High School PTSA. Learn more at www.issaquahcommunitynetwork.com.
