NE: UNL to Host Marijuana Legalization DebateBy Guest Author January 29, 2013
LINCOLN, NE — The University of Nebraska-Lincoln is hosting “Heads vs. Feds: The Debate Over the Legalization of Marijuana,” a debate between a prominent activist who supports legalization and a former federal drug-enforcement agent.
Steve Hager, the former editor-in-chief of High Times Magazine, will square off against former Drug Enforcement Agency special agent Bob Stutman. Student questions will drive the debate.
Stutman, labeled as “the most famous narc in America” by New York Magazine, served 25 years as one of the most high-profile drug busters in the world. He has appeared on hundreds of television shows, including “Today” and “The Oprah Winfrey Show.”
Hager is a former New York Daily News reporter who served as the editor of High Times Magazine for more than 16 years. Today, he remains an editor of High Times and writes monthly columns titled “Counterculture Chronicles.”
The debate is free to UNL students with a valid student identification card and $5 for all others.
It’s scheduled for 7:30 p.m. on Feb. 7 in the Nebraska Union’s Centennial Room.
