Community meeting about K2, synthetic marijuana

K2, synthetic marijuana, is the subject of the November 27 roundtable of Congresswoman Eleanor Holmes Norton's Commission on Black Men and Boys.   The event takes place at the Martin Luther King Jr. Memorial Library (901 G St NW) from 6:30 - 8:30 pm.

Attendees at the roundtable will discuss the growing use of synthetic marijuana by young people in the District.   The commission will hear from experts and residents, and, in keeping with its usual custom at community hearings, will ask residents in the audience to offer brief testimony.

Norton established the commission, which is chaired by former D.C. police chief Isaac Fulwood, to provide a thoughtful forum for discussion and problem-solving on some of the most persistent and controversial issues faced by African American men and youth, including drug use, crime, high unemployment, and education deficits.

More information is in the event flier.
