Sandra Bennett Biography

Title:
Executive Director of the Northwest Center for Health and Safety
Position:
Con to the question "Should Marijuana Be a Medical Option?"
Reasoning:

“While a plant may have specific valuable properties, such as THC, those properties should be extracted and separated from the more harmful properties, such as smoke and psychotropics. There is no control over the dose and an appropriate dose is not known. It should not be smoked and it shouldn’t be made available without going through FDA’s scientific testing protocols.”
