Supporters of medical marijuana amendment 'disappointed' by Florida Medical Association's opposition

http://jacksonville.com/news/health-and-fitness/2014-08-06/story/supporters-medical-marijuana-amendment-disappointed-florida

Sponsors of a ballot amendment to legalize medical marijuana in Florida say the recent opposition to the amendment by a state medical lobbying group is misguided.

The Florida Medical Association came out Monday against Amendment 2, saying the measure doesn’t properly protect patients.

In criticizing the amendment, the organization urged its membership to refuse to prescribe medical marijuana if the amendment passes until products are approved by the Food and Drug Administration.

The amendment, which goes before Florida voters Nov. 4, would legalize medical marijuana in Florida for certain patients.

No offense meant by my thread, of course. I'm so accustomed to people trashing my music (disco especially). It's one of the few things I have a very thick skin about. I can't tell you how many times I've had to endure disco being utterly trashed, and yes I didn't argue back, just dealt with it. MrScorpio, your political opinions rock, fwiw. Some of the rock music enthusiasts take utter delight in trashing disco. Ok ok, I get it, you hate disco, next topic please.

If it makes anyone feel better, some songs I liked were dissed. I just don't care for KFF. I'm sure many don't care for my favorite, which is an EDM song . Anyway, we live and let live. No disrepect meant to anyone, sincerely.

Checking in on the 90-year-old vet who is running across America

http://news.yahoo.com/90-year-old-runs--and-hitchhikes-when-he-s-tired--across-the-country-135545407.html

If slow and steady really does win the race, count Ernie Andrus as the world champion.

The 90-year-old World War II veteran started running/jogging/ambling across the country last October from San Diego. In June, when CBS News profiled him, he was in Payson, Ariz. And now, more than 10 months after he started, he has crossed into New Mexico, according to his Facebook page, which keeps his fans updated on his whereabouts.

Andrus, who runs three days a week, isn't sprinting straight across the country, per se. Each running day, he sets off, covers as much ground as his 90-year-old legs will carry him, and then catches a ride back to his RV. He drives to the spot he stopped running and chills out until he's ready to set off again.

While Andrus is in fantastic shape, he isn't shy about asking for help when he needs it. He told KPHO that hitchhiking back to his RV at the end of each run is no problem. "I know I can stick out my thumb and the first person to come by will give me a ride. They won’t pass up this old man out there, you know."

Android smartphones and rebooting....

After you install an app from Google Play, it's a waste of time to reboot your phone, correct ? I'm so used to desktops running Windows requiring a reboot. Thanks in advance.

Ebola Treatment: How Big Tobacco and the Military Came Together

http://www.nbcnews.com/storyline/ebola-virus-outbreak/ebola-treatment-how-big-tobacco-military-came-together-n173311

A tobacco titan and the U.S. military are unlikely partners in a possible Ebola breakthrough — plants purposely infected with Ebola-related proteins that, in turn, helped produce emergency medicine for two Americans who contracted the virus in Africa.

The second of those two Americans, Nancy Writebol, arrived Tuesday at Emory University Hospital following an airlift. She and Dr. Kent Brantly each contracted Ebola while treating patients at a missionary clinic in Liberia. Brantly was admitted earlier to the same Atlanta hospital.

Both are said to be improving since receiving the experimental anti-Ebola drug ZMapp, developed through a unique alliance between the U.S. military, private scientists, and Reynolds American Inc., which is working to remodel the image of Big Tobacco.

ZMapp is composed of three “humanized” mouse monoclonal antibodies — one of which was developed at the U.S. Army Medical Research Institute of Infectious Diseases (USAMRIID) — and manufactured in tobacco plants.

FYI to new people, there is an Eating Disorders Support group on DU
