Moderator: Jeremy Pelzer, Cleveland.com

The Ohio Drug Price Relief Act, a citizen-initiated statute slated for the November ballot, would require the state of Ohio to pay no more for prescription drugs than the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs. And, regardless of how you plan to vote, it could end up being the state’s most expensive ballot-issue campaign ever, according to political analysts and observers.

This forum will have arguments on both sides of this ballot issue and a representative from CWRU Weatherhead/Medical School to further debate this complicated subject.
