  1. Do you think we are winning the War on Drugs?

    Other: Drugs have been around for more years than we realize. We just have to keep working.

  2. Do you support legislation to allow patients under a doctor's supervision to use marijuana for medical conditions?

    Yes, if it is a fact that marijuana is a definite help for eye problems, parkinsons, etc.

  3. Do you favor a legal distinction between marijuana and hard drugs?

    Not sure.

  4. What is your position on the use of alcohol and tobacco?

    Current policy is appropriate. We do need to control distribution to children.

  5. Do you think Congress should establish a blue-ribbon commission to evaluate national drug policy?

    Not sure. Commissions create other commissions.

  6. Are you interested in participating in the discussion and development of drug policy?

    Yes. I feel this is a difficult subject - if there were clear answers / solutions, we would not be sending these questionnaires.
