MINOT, N.D. - Minot State University's Humanities Department will be hosting a Campus and Community Dialogue to discuss legalizing marijuana in North Dakota on Oct. 24 from 7-8:30 p.m.

"In these forums we mean to inform, engage, and activate campus and community interest and knowledge about topics important to us all, and to do so in a light civil forum," said Robert Kibler, professor of literature and humanities and chair of the Division of Humanities. This third Campus Community Dialogue will address the upcoming vote on Measure 3, which would legalize (recreational) marijuana use in North Dakota."

The panel will consist of David Owen, who is the author of Measure 3, and Minot attorney Andrew J. Schultz, candidate for Ward County State's Attorney.

"Two people with a vested interest in the discussion will give divergent views, then we open up the event for a free-wheeling discussion," Kibler said. "Please come, and bring your opinions and your civility."

Alexandra Deufel, professor of biology at Minot State, will moderate the discussion.

The event is free of charge and will take place at the Northwest Arts Center located on the lower level of the Gordon B. Olson Library at Minot State. The entrance is on the south side of the library. Refreshments will be provided. Those unable to attend can livestream the event on the Minot State's Facebook page.
