Executive Director of the Drug Free Schools Coalition
Con to the question "Should Marijuana Be a Medical Option?"
"There is no package insert for smoked marijuana... you... grow your own medicine and you decide the dose and purity. Smoking is a very poor way to deliver a drug. There is no way to calculate the dose of smoked marijuana because there is no way to determine how much is actually being inhaled. There is no way for a patient to determine the strength of marijuana necessary. In addition, the harmful chemicals and carcinogens that are byproducts of smoked marijuana create new health problems."
Experts PhD's and JD's (lawyers) with significant post-doctoral involvement in medical marijuana issues; judges who have presided over medical marijuana cases. [Note: Experts definition varies by site.]
