Ridiculous failure of the legislature to act in the best interest of the patients. And even more disconcerting is those who make declarative statements, like the senator, without the knowledge or data to support them.

If Calif. allows it, that is a significant step. However, they prescribe only within the scope of the authority they are tested, certified, and under the physician's auspicious. Psychiatrist's usually don't prescribe for maintainable C-II Rx's like methadone or C-IIII Suboxone. But may if certied in addition medicine. If a PA writes for it, it is somewhat unusual. PA's NP's can write for C-II's like d-amphetamine or others if trained and certified. Other's feel uneasy. In a overburdened state of 30 million we don't have enough upper level presciber's to treat all the populace. The pharmacist may not dispense it if they see a pattern of Dr shopping.
