Still waiting on something similar for those of us who require the life-life-savin g Epi-pen. And our life threatening emergency is not through any fault of our own.... Enabling, that will help.

I still can't understand how these people are handing this stuff out to the untrained public. Go ahead, use those drugs. We'll give you something to make it all ok.
