New Guidelines for Opioid Treatment Offer Hope

Pill Bottle Spilled Out

As deaths from dug overdose continue to increase, the Biden Administration has announced a key change affecting the prescription of buprenorphine. The policy, first proposed in January during the Trump Administration, eliminates training requirements for the prescription of buprenorphine and expands eligibility to nurse practitioners, physicians assistants, and certified nurse midwives. Before the change, healthcare workers were forced to take an 8-hour course before they could prescribe buprenorphine. This requirement caused many healthcare workers to avoid the drug entirely.

Microscope In A Lab

The National Institutes of Health (NIH) this week reversed a Trump-era policy blocking federally-funded facilities from conducting research using fetal tissue obtained from abortions.

The announcement was met with backlash from Republicans and anti-abortion…

Facebook

Facebook is censoring the New York Post. Again. Facebook users reported that they weren’t able to share the link to a story that the Post published about Black Lives Matter co-founder Patrisse Khan-Cullors’ recent multimillion-dollar “real estate buying binge.” The Post reported that as Black Lives Matter protests and riots ensued last year after the killing of George Floyd, the group’s co-founder purchased four luxury homes worth a total of $3.2 million. The Post article emphasized the irony of Khan-Cullors, a self-proclaimed Marxist, using money from her movement to buy…

With Weed Legalized, NYPD Not Allowed To Approach Smokers

Police officers in New York this week received a notice instructing them not to stop or approach people who are smoking marijuana in public. The memo was sent two days after Governor Andrew Cuomo (D) signed a bill to legalize recreational use for residents 21 and older. Smoking weed in public places, including sidewalks and front porches, “is not a basis for an approach, stop, summons, arrest, or search,” reads the memo. The smell of marijuana “no longer establishes probable cause of a crime to search a vehicle,” though police…
