Wednesday on The Robert Scott Bell Show:
Overwrought marketing? Ads, not research, create some pharma best-sellers. The 60-second TV advertisement, which ran widely late last year, concerns a neurological condition known by the acronym PBA, characterized by inappropriate, uncontrolled outbursts of laughing or crying. Though no drug is mentioned, the advertisement is sponsored by Avanir Pharmaceuticals, an Aliso Viejo, California, firm that launched Nuedexta, a pricey, brand-name medicine that targets the disorder. The ad ends by referring people to a website and toll-free number for more information.
The ad campaign has helped fuel the controversy over how direct-to-consumer (DTC) advertising—typified by ads that call on you to “ask your doctor” about a possible treatment—takes niche medicine and promotes its use for a broad range of patients and fosters the use of pricey prescription products when cheaper ones might suffice.

Best mashup of All Time according to Super Don: Earth, Wind & Fire team up with a variety of Ozzy Osbournes to sing about transportation.
Exploding Kittens made history when it became the most-backed game in Kickstarter history and the campaign with the most number of backers, ever. It is a highly-strategic, kitty-powered version of Russian Roulette. Players draw cards until someone draws an Exploding Kitten, at which point they explode, they are dead, and they are out of the game — unless that player has a Defuse card, which can defuse the kitten using things like laser pointers, belly rubs, and catnip sandwiches. All of the other cards in the deck are used to move, mitigate, or avoid the Exploding Kittens.

The U.S. could run into a vaccine supply predicament if an influenza pandemic hits, since only one drugmaker has a U.S. facility with egg-based vaccine production capabilities. Further, the situation could be even more serious if the epidemic comes from an avian flu, which could infect the very same hens that supply the eggs used for vaccine development.
Every 45 minutes, a child is hospitalized in the U.S. because of a gunshot wound. Fifty seven percent of firearm-related injuries in children 15 years of age and younger are unintentional. We all want to improve on the issue of gun safety to protect our children from accidental injury, but when it comes to vaccine safety, many turn a blind eye, accepting vaccine injury as a necessary evil.
As cannabis legalization gains more and more support across the United States, it is becoming more clear which demographics and which regions are still our “swing vote”. The Southern United States, which include many faith based or Christian groups, may certainly be that. During my career in cannabis, I have met many people from Texas, Alabama, Georgia, and even Tennessee and Kentucky who are working hard to pioneer cannabis law reform in their states. In fact, a few years ago we found that over half of younger Christians back legalizing marijuana. And, with the recent big wins in Florida and Arkansas this past election cycle, perhaps we are on our way to changing the paradigm of thought.
It seems that cops are now cracking down on the sale of CBD oil, even if it’s made from hemp. Two health food stores in Bismarck, North Dakota were subjected to police raids this past week — for selling CBD oil. Officers from the police force’s Narcotics division “visited” the Bisman Food Co-op and Terry’s Health Products on May 11, both of which sell the hemp-based product.
