Legalization of Marijuana Videoconference 
Legalization of Marijuana Videoconference 
This was the second student-designed, student-organized and student-moderated conference by a CITVC class member.

CITVC has always set up its own conferences along with our use of content providers, but they were always by the teacher, Ms. Kathleen Menake. This year Ms. Menake saw the potential in her students to take the reins and go it on their own.

Eric and Matthew, CITVC students, were very interested in the current issues surrounding New Jersey's being the 14th state to legalize marijuana for patients diagnosed with severe illnesses. So, they contacted the Students for Sensible Drug Policy (SSDP), "an international grassroots network of students who are concerned about the impact drug abuse has on our communities, but who also know that the War on Drugs is failing our generation and our society. SSDP mobilizes and empowers young people to participate in the political process, pushing for sensible policies to achieve a safer and more just future, while fighting back against counterproductive Drug War policies, particularly those that directly harm students and youth." -SSDP Mission statement. CITVC spoke with Ms. Stacia Cosner, Associate Director of SSDP via Skype.
