At the previous panel, I asked a similar question of one of the other doctors. What has become obvious is that this legislation really doesn't provide those tools. I don't think anybody wants to see a young person criminalized and have that record follow them, but one of the witnesses did say that there should be a way to allow the issue to be addressed, and we still haven't come up with any answers here. We're hoping, as all of us sit around this table, to make it a better bill. If the government is going down this route, we want to make it the best we can.
There is also a controversy over how dangerous cannabis is to young minds. Again, the former panel said it is more dangerous because of the cumulative effects for young people. We heard Dr. Fischer say this is a less dangerous substance.
I was wondering about your opinion. Is cannabis less dangerous than alcohol for youth, or is it more dangerous? You brought up different things about new disorders, things along those lines. What is your opinion?
