The Buckeye Institute's President and CEO Robert Alt is moderating a debate for the Columbus Lawyers Chapter of The Federalist Society.

You're all invited!  Heck, even your least favorite in-laws and weird neighbors with the mismatched Christmas lights are too.  We don't discriminate against anyone who would like to hear a good regulatory debate.  Bring any friends, colleagues, or family you would like (after registering them).  See details below.

Topic: The FDA now regulates e-cigarettes.  Should it?  Will regulation improve public health?  Will it cost American lives?


Resolved: Keep the FDA Away From My E-Cig


Arguing for the Resolution:

Jonathan H. Adler

Johan Verheij Memorial Professor of Law

Case Western Reserve University School of Law


Arguing Against the Resolution:

Micah Berman

Assistant Professor of Public Health and Law

The Ohio State University Moritz College of Law
