Bessemer — Marijuana proponents on the Gogebic Range will hold a speaking and civic engagement event at the Bessemer City Hall on Saturday, April 8, from 2:30 to 6 p.m.

The marijuana proponents are inviting locals to come to the auditorium at city hall to learn, engage, and discuss the benefits of marijuana to the city of Bessemer, across the entire socio-economic spectrum.

The Saturday event is broken down into four blocks of time:

—2:30-3:30 p.m .: Leisure information booths.

—3:30-4:30 p.m .: Main presentation and guest speakers.

—4:30-5:30 p.m .: Open forum discussion and debate.

—5:30-6 p.m .: Raffle and prizes, to include numbered prints from Ducks Unlimited and local woodmaking crafts.

Event coordinators are seeking anti-marijuana constituents to engage in a moderated debate. So far, according to Chandra Portell, they have reached out to dozens of marijuana opponents, but have not identified anyone willing to engage in a civil, moderated, public debate.

In the event someone would like to engage in a public debate on the benefits of marijuana, Chandra can be reached at 907-319-9030.
