State legislators are responsible for drafting and passing laws to protect and to bring justice to the citizens of their state. However, many, perhaps the vast majority, of state legislators are lawyers who had liberal arts degrees rather than degrees in the science majors prior to entering law school. Very few state legislators, lawyer and non-lawyers, have undergraduate or advance degree in the science fields. Consequently, the legislative rules pertaining to issues related to pharmacology and toxicology frequently result in what can only be call “Junk Science” that can cause injustice for the citizen accused and/or convicted of these junk science laws.
