Christine Smith Biography

Title:
Founder and Former President of Dreams of Freedom, Inc.
Position:
Pro to the question "Should Marijuana Be a Medical Option?"
Reasoning:

“Yes. In my opinion government agencies such as the FDA, and DEA stand in the way to American’s health with all their regulations. Regulations delay and prohibit pain-relieving drugs and potentially helpful pharmaceuticals/treatments from being available to the American people… Specifically… marijuana should be legal for any purpose. I will end the ‘War on Drugs.’ I will end the suffering, deaths, and injustice imposed upon Americans by this insane policy. By executive order I intend to pardon people who have harmed no other person and are now incarcerated due to non-violent drug offenses.”
