  • Several states have issued recalls of legal weed due to contamination with bacteria, mold, and pesticides.
  • Cannabis testing requirements vary by state and may lack government oversight, one expert said.
  • This can lead to discrepancies in cannabis quality, and potentially risky products being released to medical patients.

Medical staff call to be vaccinated against monkeypox after doctor infected

Medical staff administering monkeypox tests at Ichilov Hospital in Tel Aviv have requested access to the vaccine against the virus from the Health Ministry, after a doctor was infected earlier in the week while handling a sample, Hebrew media reported on Thursday.

The doctor was wearing full protective gear while testing patients and was likely exposed to the virus while removing his gloves according to an epidemiological investigation, the Kan public broadcaster reported.

Dr. Roy Zucker, a specialist in infectious diseases and head of LGBTQ medicine at the Clalit health fund, told the Kan public broadcaster that medical staff should be immunized against monkeypox.

There are medicines that Angelina Scott can’t live without. Between her Atrial Fibrillation, high blood pressure and high cholesterol, the 45-year-old notary is currently taking five prescriptions.

“You can’t tell your heart, please don’t stop beating,” Scott told CNN.

But with sky high inflation and hundreds of dollars in monthly medical bills, Scott and her husband, a maintenance worker, are falling behind financially.

To cut costs, she’s stopped taking medicine for her irritable bowel syndrome, which she says cost several hundred dollars each month because insurance won’t cover it.

“People will [say], you can’t afford not to. No, literally I cannot afford to,” Scott said, adding that forgoing the medicine “makes me fatigued, lethargic, I get the shakes, very sickly.”
