Genetic testing is the future of healthcare, but many experts say companies like 23andMe are doing more harm than good

Genetic testing will be a cornerstone of healthcare in 2019, experts say. There are two ways to do the testing: getting a costly but complete genetic workup through a doctor or opting for a cheaper at-home test like those sold by 23andMe. Clinicians and advocates criticize the at-home approach, which they say prioritizes and long-term health. But entrepreneurs counter that the at-home approach lets more people access information. Which method will win out, and at what cost? As millions of A...

Pre-emption issues permeate prescription-drug safety litigation because the Food and Drug Administration regulates the safety and efficacy of prescription drugs under federal law, while state tort law provides the remedy for patients injured by the use of FDA-approved drugs.  Prescription drug manufacturers frequently raise “impossibility pre-emption” as a de...

Here’s how Year One of legal cannabis in California played out

Decades from now, anyone looking back at California history will note 2018 for one major change: the year recreational cannabis became legal. The sky clearly didn’t fall. Some hospitals reported upticks in marijuana-related visits, but reliable data on that issue is a couple years out. And other early reports suggest teen use is down, arrests are plummeting and accidental pet consumption is leveling off. For the marijuana industry, however, the year was a rocky one, as California struggled in th...
