5-Star: Smoke Screen with Moe Spencer Cultural Event

Entertainment Unlimited is presenting a 5-Star event on Monday, April 9th from 7:00pm to 8:30pm in the University Center 202 entitled “Smoke Screen with Moe Spencer.” Over 800,000 people are arrested for marijuana possession in the US each year – this in the same country where our founding father, George Washington, grew marijuana on his farm. Now legal marijuana is one of the fastest growing industries in the U.S. Merwin Moe Spencer is a marijuana attorney and will introduce you to the history of marijuana growth and its use in the U.S, the political reasons why it became illegal, and the origins of its classification as a Schedule 1 Narcotic. Former President Richard Nixon’s mandate for its Schedule 1 classification has had far-reaching consequences on areas from the economy to race relations and continues to color our politics today. The climate is changing and people are divided on this issue. Moe equips his audience with the historical and legal facts to make up their own mind on this controversial topic.

There will also be a follow-up discussion for this event held on Tuesday, April 10th from 11:00am to 12:00pm in the CLACS Lobby of the University Center. Free pizza will be provided for attendees.
