Hosted by the Liberal Party of Canada in South Surrey-White Rock-Cloverdale, the meeting is touted as an opportunity “to have a discussion in our community about all that’s involved with the regulated legalization of marijuana… to have an informed and critical conversation about how to legalize, regulate and tax the production, distribution and use of marijuana.”

Doors open at 7 p.m. Panelists are to speak for eight to 10 minutes each, followed by more than an hour of dialogue and moderated questions.

Those planning to attend are asked to reserve a seat online at http://events.liberal.ca/Event/town-hall—legalization-of-marijuana-an-exploration-of-the-issues.aspx
