One Line Monday: Should Experimental Drugs Be Legal?

This morning, the Flakes want to know what you think about allowing people to use “experimental drugs” that haven’t been approved by the FDA.

Everyone we talked to was in agreement.  As long as patients are willing to sign a waiver and absolve the doctors and hospitals of any liability, why shouldn’t people be allowed to use any means necessary to save their lives?

One guy called in to tell us about his wife, who suffered from migraine headaches for years.  She was taking a medicine that cost over $50 and it didn’t help.  Finally, someone she knew recommended an herbal remedy made from wild yam.  She hasn’t migraine since.

We also got an e-mail from a listener who made a great point.  It’s ironic that it takes so long to approve certain drugs but pot is legal in some states.  Plus, the people who selling weed aren’t licensed pharmacists.  Yet, pharmacies have a long list of rules.  It doesn’t make sense to him and it doesn’t make sense to us either.

If you have an opinion about experimental drugs, or a story to share, feel free to share it with Mark and Paul.  Drop us a line
