A controversial subject comes to Edmonds on Monday, Nov. 16, when Edmonds’ own international travel writer and TV host Rick Steves hosts “Marijuana: It’s Time for a Conversation,” at the Edmonds Center for the Arts, 410 Fourth Ave. N., starting at 7 p.m.

The half-hour video looks at the impacts of federal and state marijuana laws, exploring the little-known history of marijuana prohibition and featuring interviews with leading national experts. Admission is free, and following the screening the American Civil Liberties Union of Washington will moderate a public forum that includes Steves and the following participants:


    I have a 23-year-old son who is a success and has never tried pot.

    But the drug czar ( Gil Kerlikowske ) has a son who was jailed for marijuana sales and assault.

    The drug czar has been an anti drug use zealot for all his life, yet his kid has chosen to smoke a little pot and make money off of it.

    My 23-year-old son was always told the truth about medical use of marijuana. ( I have hepatitis C and use and grow medical marijuana. )

    Kerlikowske’s son grew up with all the lies his father told him.

    I think my son turned out better than Kerlikowski’s did,

    He has never decided to drink or smoke anything. And he is a success! And he votes in favor of marijuana being legalized.

    United States citizens have never had a chance to have a say about what we choose to put into our own bodies; that time is NOW.

    Please legalize medical marijuana for everyone who needs it for their health around the country.

    I am counting on YOU to make it legal for once in my life. Before I die from Hep-C.

    Thank you very much!
