Having a discussion on decriminalizing drugs is back on the forefront for El Paso ity leaders.
El Paso city councilman Beto O'Rourke announced Friday, he will place the controversial issue on Tuesday's agenda.
This, after Mayor John Cook vetoed the resolution.
O'Rourke's decision could have been promted in part by a private discussion he had Thursday night with a documentary filmmaker.
The city representative is one several city and county leaders who met with the creator of "Drug Wars".
Newschannel 9 has learned that of all that was discussed, one thing was agreed upon, El Paso is now on the forefront of a national discussion that needs to happen.
