"The ability of that being there worries me. "

- State Senator Scott Hammond, District 18 talking about the death with dignity bill, that he opposes. He is concerned that someone who has been given the drugs could fall prey to a person spiking their water, for example and yet the way the law is currently written the medical examiner would list the original illness as the cause of death. He admits that there has been no reported case of this occurring in any state where death with dignity is in effect.
