#Zaama_TownHall aims to spread the culture of fact-driven debate, discussion, and dialogue between citizens and public officials.

The two-hour TV show addresses a prominent and controversial policy with significant repercussions for Tunisian youth in an attempt to understand the relevant legal context and devise solutions based on the proposition of new bills or amendments. The upcoming town hall will probe the effects of the 1992 Narcotics Law No. 52 and the prison sentences it involves for the consumers of “zatla”, a cannabis-based drug. The #Zama_TownHall will be live on March 14th, 2021 under the title: #We_change_law52_InOrderTo
