Pretty much. There was no way big tobacco was going to miss out on a new nicotine delivery system...

Big Tobacco will be a joke compared to Big Pot, seeing as how it's a miracle drug, great for your lungs, and we can't show how progressive and smart we are by legalizing it everywhere!!

Well the next step will be to make it kid friendly.

Try Maui Wowie Kit Kat and Indu Kush M & Ms!

This show has been garbage from about episode 6 from the first season. The second season was a steaming pile.

Nah, they have their money in all the vaping products. From Juul's wiki page: "Altria Group (formerly Philip Morris Companies), acquired a 35% stake in Juul Labs for $12.8 billion on December 20, 2018"

About that vaping story...

It kind of bothers me that the entire nation is up in arms over vaping when the illnesses seem to be caused by people lacing their juice with harmful ingredients while cigarette makers are they themselves lacing cigarettes with all kinds of toxins, yet comparatively very little noise is made. I wouldn't be surprised to find that the big tobacco lobby is pushing lawmakers to crack down on the far less harmful alternative to big tobacco's poison. Follow the money, as they say.
The big vape company (JUUL) has been around for a couple of years but none of the deaths or illness has been related to their products. Only illegal aftermarket pens used for the devils jazz cabbage which have vitamin E acetate have been linked to health problems.
I'm not saying they (JUUL) sells health food in a vapor, but their products are not causing a noticeable increase in illness much less death.

IIRC, properly produced vaping products are less dangerous than tobacco.

A tiny pharmacy is identifying big problems with common drugs, including Zantac.

I went and registered with these guys after hearing about them on Peter Attia's podcast. I really appreciate what they are trying to do, but man were they expensive.

My prescription 3 mos with insurance: $12
My prescription 3 mos w/o insurance: $30
Valisure 3 months w/o insurance: $289


The vast majority of generics are made in India and China far from the prying eyes of the FDA. That's a huge concern.
I hope it varies based on the meds because nearly a 10x cost reduces the usefulness. I mean, I would need some pricing in advance to know if it was a price I could afford...

But yeah, we need someone watching this more closely.

Do they offer Zantac in a horse tranquilizer dose? Might be able to get a bulk discount. Asking for a friend.

Today is Aaron Swartz Day.

Thanks for reminding us of the incredible prosecutorial overreach that resulted in Aaron's death. Threatened with 50 years of prison for making some documents public.

Speaking of injustice:

White man forces black man to work for no pay for 17 years, issues regular beatings: 10 years prison.

Black man arrested for possessing a small amount of illegal drugs, prescription pills and a firearm: 12 years prison.

Same prosecutor.

Sounds like a real Swartzkoff. I don't know what that means, it just sounds like a good poke!

Use the schwartz!

It looks like a Schwartz Off!
