Debate III

Since I am just looking to post something. Let's talk about the recent surge in smoking bans. Or we could talk about drug legalizations. Any other ideas. I think these two would be hot topics with lots of people of each side (drugs more than smoking) and would bring in a good size crowd. As mentioned before a "living wage vs. minimum wage" or "the effects of pollution controls" would also bring in a good size crowd. Gotta love them hippies....

I think the drug legalization topic would garner a lot of interest while keeping more relevancy than Walmart did.

Assertive and competent moderation is a must (and should be taken care of first and foremost), but there are a few groups/names to invite that come to mind...

I dunno who moderated last time, but it would be useful to have an expert up there talking at the end of the debate to finish it off and end it. Like the moderator/MC who has the final thoughts and finishes it here.

A true debate style would be cool.

I didn't catch the Wal-Mart one, so I don't know how it needs to be improved upon.

Invitees could be particular professors, Drug Control, Raleigh Police (i know someone specifically), policy analysts, and the college Reps, Dems, and Libertarians.
