Included in the discussion is Oaksterdam founder and co-sponsor of the initiative Richard Lee; Tim Rosales, the campaign manager for No on Prop. 19 and Beau Kilmer, the co-director for RAND Drug Policy Research Center. The program is moderated by the Oakland Tribune political and legal affairs reporter Josh Richman.
