“Medical Marijuana Policy in Arizona” will be held from 7 to 9 p.m. Monday, Nov.  14, in NAU’s Cline Library Auditorium.

Panelists will include Don Herrington, director for the medical marijuana program at the Arizona Department of Health Services, the state agency that developed the medical marijuana regulations.
