How do you stop parents from trying to opt their kids out of immunizations? In Washington state, requiring counseling (and a signed letter from a physician) worked.
With the crisis in full swing and opioid use being tracked (and sometimes limited), physicians are looking at options from NSAIDs to acupuncture to SSRIs to chiropractors.
Over the past 300 years they’ve been growing steadily, and that growth has accelerated since the 1990s. Science!
Did you know people in Georgia with HIV can be sent to prison for up to 10 years for not disclosing that fact to a partner? And up to 20 years for spitting at a cop? (It falls under “bodily fluid.”)
Those laws are relics from the 1990s, and not surprisingly, people are asking for a change.
Amazon’s Alexa can now tell you the cheapest local pharmacy to buy any given drug (for people paying cash).
The good news is, there’s a scientifically proven way to stop the hiccups. The bad news is, you’re not gonna want to try it.
