~National Healthcare Action Day June 19, 2004

On Saturday, June 19th, tens of thousands of people -- those who have health insurance and those who don't, those who fear losing coverage and those who have too little -- will join together across the country to bridge the gap in health care.

From the Golden Gate Bridge to the Brooklyn Bridge, take part in a national action to call for quality, affordable health care for all!

Rising Rx prices, costly effects

Increase in co-pays for drugs results in people skimping on their medications, a new study says |Link|

Vermont to be 9th Medical Marijuana State |Link|

Drug WarRants comments: Oh, and patients will be allowed to grow 3 plants -- perfect for the medical marijuana patient who gets sick occasionally.

Three plants is pathetic for a chronically ill patient considering, crop failures (fungus, molds, pests), equipment problems, or just a bad grow. Oregon is working on a new initiative to improve Oregon's medical marijuana program. Voter Power is sponsoring an initiative that would increase amounts, add naturopaths and nurse practitioners as qualifying signers, and allow dispensaries. Find out more, here.
