FED UP Rally presses feds to end addiction epidemic

(MYRTLE BEACH) This past weekend I attended and was a speaker in Washington, DC at the FED UP Rally for a Federal Response to the Prescription Opioid/Heroin Epidemic. It was an experience I will never forget.

Below are the names of the organizations sending representatives to the reception and march to The White House. Pretty impressive don’t you think? It was very impressive — 2,000 people marching on The White House demanding Margaret Hamburg be removed as head of the F.D.A. The FED UP Rally calls for immediate, coordinated and comprehensive federal action to end the epidemic of addiction and overdose deaths attributed to opioids (including heroin) and other prescription drugs.

The Scottish Referendum in a nutshell

(SAN FRANCISCO) My wife and I just returned from a week’s stay in Edinburgh, which was shortly after the Scottish independence vote.  The Scots voted to stay with England 55 to 45 percent.  There was no rioting in the street over the vote results.

The “no” campaign always led in the polls but the “yes” campaign was gaining ground.  Then Prime Minister David Cameron, Ed Millbrand, and Nick Clegg, the leaders of the three major British parties, signed a pledge to devolve more powers to Scotland, if the Scots rejected independence.  It is not clear how much this “pledge” effected the vote, but it might have stopped the growing support for the “yes” campaign.
