Hi all- We are rewriting our minor's policy and were specifically asked if a minor (under 18 years old) could handle chemotherapy drugs for research purposes. We are specific that they may not do anything with radioactives, lab animals, etc., but this is a new one. Does anyone have a policy or thought on this? Any citations to back this up?

Thanks in advance!
