Director of White House Office of National Drug Control Policy next guest for “On the Issues” at Marquette Law School
Date: Wednesday, March 6, 2013
Time: 12:15 p.m.
Place: Marquette Law School, Eckstein Hall
Gil Kerlikowske, director of the White House Office of National Drug Control Policy, will be the next guest for “On the Issues with Mike Gousha,” Wednesday, March 6, from 12:15 p.m. to 1:15 p.m. in Eckstein Hall, 1215 W. Michigan Street.
Is legalizing drugs the only option for reforming our national drug policies? Often referred to as the nation’s “drug czar,” Kerlikowske is charting a new course to reduce illicit drug use and its consequences in the United States. The former Seattle police chief rejects what he calls “the false choice between an enforcement-centric war on drugs and the legalization of drugs.” Kerlikoske will outline a “21st century” approach to drug policy, one that treats the nation’s drug problem as a public health issue, not just a criminal justice issue, when he takes questions from Gousha and the audience at Marquette Law School.
Gousha, distinguished fellow in law and public policy and an award-winning journalist, continues his “On the Issues” series of provocative and insightful interviews with local and national public officials, journalists and other newsmakers throughout the year. The spring 2013 schedule
is also available.
