Mylan launching cheaper, generic version of EpiPen August 29, 2016 at 7:46 p.m.

Well, I think there is a lot of misinformation floating out there. I'm not sure I'm up to speed either, but as far as I can tell, there WAS a generic (twinject) approved. Or at least a competitor since it's the delivery method that is patent-able and not the drug itself. The manufacturer discontinued it a few years ago. I don't think this is a failure with the FDA.

Mylan launching cheaper, generic version of EpiPen August 29, 2016 at 3:37 p.m.

"How can Mylan launch it's own 'generic' version when the FDA previously denied a potential competitor to Mylan from introducing a generic version?"
.
Because all Mylan probably has to do is submit a generic label to the FDA whereas a competitor has to show their drug is identical. Not remotely the same thing. And there are no pricing privileges other than, perhaps, reimbursement which can help set pricing. Incidentally, I've got a whole list of things the government should step in and control prices for. Where do I submit my list?

Police: Man admits he exposed self to girl in children's section of North Little Rock bookstore August 29, 2016 at 12:07 p.m.

Nod, I'm amazed you can put pants on in the morning. And I say that as someone who understands the point you're (poorly) trying to make.

Monuments to idiocy August 28, 2016 at 9:16 a.m.

TSA is a massive failure. It's a bloated agency with a dismal success rate when tested. It serves no purpose other than to dupe the flying public into thinking the government is doing something to keep you safe. I say we start over. If that's privatization, so be it.

In protest, NFL QB sits during national anthem August 27, 2016 at 8:36 p.m.

Considering how many rules the NFL has, I'm rather surprised he wasn't required to stand. I expect a backlash. Which is, of course, the right of the fans in this free country. As for Kap, he's an idiot.

Judge: In lawsuit from mother of slain KATV anchor, hospital not to blame August 27, 2016 at 11:28 a.m.

'Everyone' didn't have access the files. People who should and do have access looked against company policy. They were dealt with. As for the outrage claim, I presume the hospital disclosed the violation. If not for that, the mother wouldn't have even known. So it's a bit far fetched to think any real harm was done. As such, her suit should be unsuccessful.

Arkansas governor pans medical marijuana bid August 26, 2016 at 1:36 p.m.

Well, officially, ADH is right. Pot should be completely legal. So, being completely honest, medical use is just a way to open the door to legalization.

EpiPen price rise raises concerns; CEO at center of call for inquiry is senator’s daughter August 26, 2016 at 6:40 a.m.

Oh come on. It's absurd to think that the actual cost to make these things is a dollar.

New group joins fight against two marijuana initiatives August 25, 2016 at 7:54 p.m.

Geez, I would expect the State Surgeon General to be at least marginally informed. Then again, this is just political grandstanding.

""I do believe there are compounds in the marijuana plant that hold some promise for helping patients"
.
Hold promise? It's not like the active ingredient, THC, is already FDA approved. Oh wait, it is. Must be some definition of holding promise that I'm not familiar with.
.
"but the correct process is to go through the FDA and do the things that we would do for any other pharmaceutical."
.
And who is going to pay billions for that clinical trial? A drug company with zero chance of recouping the costs? NIDA? When NIDA has stifled research on pot for years? Incidentally, I would expect a doctor, such as Bledoe, to know that pot can be prescribed under practice of medicine exemption. Why is he for taking the decision out of the hands of his fellow doctors?

Judge acquitted in toddler's hot-car death remains on paid suspension August 25, 2016 at 4:38 p.m.

Bear - "It Puzzles me. Why is there so much hate in the Hearts of some of the Citizens of Arkansas"
.
It puzzles you because you clearly don't know what the word 'hate' means. Naramore was negligent in leaving his kid in the car to die. It seems most people are okay with subjective application of the law based on how much one has suffered. I am not. And if you think that's because I have hate in my heart, well, then, that's because you're an idiot.

"Everyone knows it was an Accident"
.
What is your point? People get cited/charged for things that are accidents every day.
