Barthwell challenged, runs away

In the State Journal-Register

The conflict reached a head this week, when Rep. Larry McKeon, D-Chicago, challenged Dr. Andrea Barthwell to a public debate about medical marijuana. Barthwell declined the challenge. …

McKeon charged that Barthwell’s seminars appear to be a smear campaign against his proposal. The lawmaker – who is living with AIDS – said House Bill 407 attempts to improve the quality of life for terminally ill patients struggling with the debilitating side effects of chemotherapy and other treatments.

Drug warriors are afraid of being in the same room with someone who has the facts.
