How California’s right-to-die law survived 2018

California’s End of Life Option Act, which gives terminally ill individuals the choice to legally end their lives by using physician-prescribed lethal drugs, survived a significant scare in 2018 after a Riverside County judge in May struck down the law. The judge’s move invalidated the law for a period of time causing confusion among doctors, assisted living centers and terminally-ill patients who were left wondering if they would be able to procure new prescriptions or use the drugs they obtain...

Appeals court overturns challenge to California’s right-to-die law

A state appeals court on Tuesday, Nov. 28 overturned a lower court ruling that halted California’s “right to die” law in late May, according to the San Francisco Chronicle. The law, in effect since 2016, allows terminally ill Californians to legally end their lives with a lethal drug after meeting certain requirements. In a 2-1 ruling, the court stated that the physicians who originally sued to overturn California’s End of Life Option Act in 2016, had no legal standing because they and their pat...

A Link Between Marijuana Legalization & Car Crashes? Nonsense

In October, the Highway Loss Data Institute and the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety released a self-published report that suggested there’s a strong correlational link between automobile crash rates and the legalization of marijuana in states. This would be harrowing news if the finding was based upon strong scientific evidence. Unfortunately for these institutes, though, the research data is murky at best. And because these organizations self-published the report, rather than going throu...

I’m not the only semi-celebrity J.D. Roth.
