ACLU Drug Policy Director to Address Law Students

Alison Holcomb, ACLU-Washington's Drug Policy Director, will speak to UW School of Law students about drug policy legislation and other issues Wednesday, February 10 at 12:30 in William H. Gates Hall Room 127.

Holcomb, who received her J.D. from the law school in 1993, will give an overview of current ACLU drug-policy projects, then discuss the two bills ACLU-WA is advocating for: the drug overdose prevention bill and the marijuana decriminalization bill.

Holcomb's presentation is sponsored by the UW School of Law ACLU student chapter.
