David G. Evans, JD Biography

Title:
Executive Director of the Drug Free Schools Coalition
Position:
Con to the question "Should Marijuana Be a Medical Option?"
Reasoning:

“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.”
