Chuck Baldwin, MA Biography

Title:
Founder and Minister of the Crossroad Baptist Church in Pensacola, FL
Position:
Pro to the question "Should Marijuana Be a Medical Option?"
Reasoning:

“The federal government has no Constitutional provision to regulate or restrict the freedom of the people to have access to medical care, supplies or treatments. We advocate, therefore, the elimination of the federal Food and Drug Administration, as it has been the federal agency primarily responsible for prohibiting beneficial products, treatments, and technologies here in the United States that are freely available in much of the rest of the civilized world.”
