Rowland Participates In Drug Debate

April 23rd, 2012
View of Tilton Hall to the West

Charles Rowland was honored to participate in a debate as part of the Heroin Seminar at Ohio Northern University which was sponsored by the Department of History, Politics and Justice.  The debate on the legalization of heroin was the culmination of an ongoing academic discussion of recognizing, understanding and fighting the abuse of heroin in the community.  Prof. Kevin Hill, a professor of law at Ohio Northern University spoke on behalf of keeping heroin illegal and subject to criminal sanction.  “Prof. Hill was one of my professors and he is a powerful advocate,” said Rowland.  Professor Hill’s  arguments for keeping heroin illegal are trumpeted by the Drug Enforcement Agency which argues that legalization would only increase the use and abuse of heroin.

Speaking on behalf of Law Enforcement Against Prohibition (L.E.A.P.) and in his capacity as a practicing criminal defense attorney, Rowland championed the idea of approaching the problems of heroin use in a more effective way.  His arguments centered on the failed “War on Drugs” and highlighted efforts to move our policy from enforcement, interdiction and incarceration to treatment and prevention.  “It was just great to stand on that familiar stage and argue for something that I have a great passion for.  I hope that we caused some policy-makers to rethink their approach to throwing people in prison.”  Rowland frequently speaks on behalf of L.E.A.P. and Miami Valley N.O.R.M.L. advocating an end to the failed policies of the drug war.

If you have been accused of a crime involving impaired driving or the use of illegal drugs, please contact Ohio OVI attorney  Charles M. Rowland II.  He has the credentials and the experience to win your case and has made himself the Miami Valley’s choice for DUI defense.  Contact Charles Rowland by phone at 937-318-1DUI (937-318-1384), 937-879-9542, or toll-free at 1-888-ROWLAND (888-769-5263).  For after-hours help contact our 24/7 DUI HOTLINE at 937-776-2671.  For information about Dayton DUI sent directly to your mobile device, text DaytonDUI (one word) to 50500.  Follow DaytonDUI on Twitter @DaytonDUI or Get Twitter updates via SMS by texting DaytonDUI to40404. DaytonDUI is also available on Facebook and on the DaytonDUI channel on YouTube.  You can also email Charles Rowland at: CharlesRowland@DaytonDUI.com or write to us at 2190 Gateway Dr., Fairborn, Ohio 45324.  Charles M.
