Closer to the Problem; Closer to Solutions

May 21, 2019


In the ongoing conversation about legalizing marijuana in many of the United States, one voice from which you may not hear as much comes from people with a first-hand perspective: people who have gone to prison for drug-related crimes.  KUMD has a conversation with Lucas Alan Dietsche from Lake Superior Ex-Incarcerated People Organizing [EXPO] about looking at these issues through the lens of formerly-incarcerated people, and incorporating a more holistic approach to drug-related issues than simply turning to incarceration.

EXPO will be hosting a community discussion at 6:30 tonight at Essentia Health/St. Mary's Hospital in Superior (3500 Tower Avenue).
