SAN FRANCISCO, Oct. 21 /PRNewswire/ -- Everest CollegeSan Francisco will host a debate Tuesday, Oct. 26 on Proposition 19, the California ballot measure that would legalize and tax marijuana for recreational use for adults.

The Everest debate on this controversial proposition will be unique, featuring proponent Dr. Ari Khan, who represents one of California's largest state approved vendors of medicinal marijuana products. Arguing against the proposition will be Everest College pharmacy technician students and a pharmacist from the school's program advisory committee. Although Everest students will be arguing against the proposition, the college is not supporting one position over the other. As an institution of higher learning, Everest – San Francisco believes that Proposition 19 is an ideal issue to debate since it may have an impact on current and future pharmacy technicians.
