For the record, if you donate plasma to a place such as DCI biologicals here, or any other commercial plasma donation center, it IS NOT for transfusion purposes. You ARE NOT saving a life by letting them stick that needle in your arm and sucking out your plasma, it's sold by their facility to other companies for research purposes only......Just for testing. THat's it. You want to save a life, donate blood to the Red Cross.

On a lighter note, back in the late 60's and early 70's when I waS in school at ASU there wasn't a place to donate blood or plasma for money here in Jonesboro. So, we would go to Memphis, hit 3 or 4 places, buy a six-pack before we headed home, and make a buzzed up road trip for everybody but the driver!! Hell of a road trip on a budget!!

this I find funny because u are acting like you know something. Do you not think researches saves lives? St. Jude Research Hospital, Cancer Research Hospital, JH Research Hospital should I mention more. This plasma can go to a research place and be used to save someone life. I know first hand. If it wasn't for research plasma I would have lost someone very dear to me. Yes researches saves lifes.

On the other hand it is scarey to see some of the people that go in there and donate!! Some people will do anything for drug money. But thanks to research places that can spin that plasma and clean it huh

Do you sound unemployed? I wasn't aware that unemployment had a distinct sound. Further, I've never heard what you sound like. I personally don't care if you're employed or not, but I feel great already so I don't think your employment status would make me feel "better". You can speculate about me all you want to. Why would I care? I'm still not sure that you're grasping the fact that this is a website on the internet. Taking things so seriously and freaking out over my personal opinions is really silly. I'm sorry that you think I'm an idiot, but I'm actually well educated. Again, we all have our opinions. I still recommend you calm down before you hurt yourself.

Oh darn. I guess he/she above was wrong. You can't fault her too much though. Different centers have different customers for x amount of contract years. Those customers have various reasons or needs for plasma. She might have been familiar with the goings on of another donation center. There ya go, though. Looks like you got it.

I call bullshit on that one. Name one single mother who works two jobs and goes there. I don't think you can name one, much less "mother(s)" like you say. You're a liar. And if being stuck up means that I would rather have a minumum wage job cleaning toilets than lower myself to selling plasma for money, then I guess I'm stuck up. It's pathetic and disgusting. If you have time to sit up there for half the day waiting to donate then you're also able to GET A JOB. But you don't want a job. You want dope. Loser.
Not everyone has to wait, Mica that works at DCI makes special arrangements for some of the singel moms that donate there. I babysit for two single mothers that do donate there. One works full time cleaning on the night shift at St Bernards and is a part time waitress. The other works cleaning at ASU and works at special events at the Convacation center. Mica knows their busy schedule and schedules an appointment for them and takes them right back when they get there. They need this money to put food on their table and buy things like diapers and such. One of the mothers is divorced and the dad is a dead beat the others husband was killed in a wreck and did not have life insurance. So you know what you can go to hell. Live in your little lala land where you think you know everything. So people are living a real honest life and trying to do the right thing. So keep on judging, God just may put you on the other side of the fence someday. I'm finished with you, move on.

Doh! No, I didn't leave, I just haven't been on here in several days, I do not live in front of my computer like some people, I actually WORK for a living, and pay my taxes so multiple people that frequent this site can sit at home and post every 2.5 minutes.

No, DCI Biologicals does NOT use it's donated plasma for anything other than selling it to the highest bidder for research. I did not ever deny that that research can save lives.....Plasma is NOT used IN medications.....you would have to pass MUCH stricter testing than DCI performs to use it in this way. Furthermore, you cannot "spin that plasma and clean it," if it's dirty, it's dirty, and people in that crowd frequently have dirty blood.

As I said before, if you really wanna save a life, go donate to the Red Cross, so we can give it to someone that really needs it.

if you will read what you posted.. its doesnt say that the plasma is given to these people , it says that it is used to manufacture life-saving drugs and therapies. It is used for resarch.

You really need to learn to read english. Go back and reread - it is not for research only!!! It is used in the treatments of specific medical conditions. Again, try to get it through your thick head, it is not for research only!!

I don't buy it for a minute. But, please tell me how can you speak of God in the same statement that you tell someone to go to hell? I don't think Jesus would like that. There's a word for people like you. What is it again? Ummmm... Hmmm... Yes, I believe it's HYPOCRITE. So, go on and light up your crack pipe, dopehead. LOL Too funny.

just so you know wrote:
i have donated plasma for money. I DONT SMOKE I DONT DO DRUGS AND I DONT EVEN DRINK. i do have kids that i will do anything legal to provide for them. i even have a job that is above min. wage pay. now go figure why i need to donate plasma not to buy DRUGS SMOKES OR BOOZE. but to help pay bills and buy food. so dont just assume everyone is there for dope or cause they are lazy and dont wanna work. speak about urself not everyone else.
My husband has been there and no we are not drug users ect. we have 3 kids and he has had the anthrax vac. in the military and they were paying good money for the plasma, we both have good jobs but we are not rich it helped us alot everyone has there own opinion

read it again yourself and do a little googling. You will find that you are as wrong as the other person, unless you both are the same person, just using different alias. I will now quit this debate since I do not see the need to continue debating those whose stupidity exceeds their ability to learn something new.

I take my $50 a week and buy my family groceries, because even though I am employed sometimes it is not enough. Be glad I am not at DHS begging for food stamps. Tax dollars fund foodstamps and everything else. I don't want the government to help me I want to be able to take care of myself. I am trying to make some legitimate extra cash along with lots of other people.

I really don't know where to start on this one. I can't decide if this person is kidding or if they are really that stupid. By the way, how do you know you need pot for medicinal purposes? Did a doctor tell you that? I think not. Or are you just some loser looking for an excuse to be a dopehead? I must go with the latter. You should be shot through the head. Hopefully some drug dealer or paranoid dope fiend will kill you soon and get you off of the streets and away from further corrupting society. I wish that would happen to every dopehead, actually. How do you expect to get a job if you can't pass a drug test? I doubt you're applying for any jobs anyway. That's probably why you lost your last one... if you've ever had a job before. Losers.
