Holds office State House District 65
When asked why the House invited Berenson, whom critics have branded as a modern-day “reefer madness” zealot, Sprowls said he wanted “to inject in the conversation the other side of the discussion.”
“We’re inundated here in the Legislature with really one side of the story. And I think as we make these kinds of choices, we have to realize that these choices have real implications for real people, and we should be considering every facet of that argument,” Sprowls said.
Berenson has a background as an investigative reporter, and his book is “heavy on the studies” and on vignettes that “put exclamations on the studies he cites,” Sprowls said.
“I think it’s important for us to take those into consideration now, before we move forward and potentially make errors that we can’t undo,” he said. (2019)
