California De-Criminalizes AIDS attacks

The state Senate on Wednesday voted to no longer make it a felony for someone infected with HIV to knowingly expose others to the disease by having unprotected sex without telling his or her partner about the infection.

The crime would be downgraded to a misdemeanor, and the bill would also apply to people who donate blood or semen without telling the blood or semen bank that they have acquired immunodeficiency syndrome, or AIDS, or have tested positive for human immunodeficiency virus, or HIV, the precursor to AIDS.

Wow is right. This is basically making biological warfare a minor offense.

It's not passed yet, but I'm sure these idiots will pass it. Anything bad for ordinary people, they pass it, just like the Feds. This is truly outrageous that they would even CONSIDER doing that. If anything, they should get life in prison for that or be forced to work to pay the medical bills of those who they infected. This kind of crap makes me nuts just watching it go on. There is NO benefit to the public to pass something like this. If it's ok to knowingly infect someone with that, why not ANYTHING?  Including ebola or any other level 5 pathogen.

We need a way to store our own blood in case we need it. I don't trust anything anymore. Too many "errors". Plus Bayer sent tainted blood and infected Canadians and they lost the suit, even though Bayer knew, it was purposeful.

Aspirin, heroin, bayer has given us so many things

Bayer's first and best known product was aspirin; there is a dispute about what scientist at Bayer made the most important contributions to it, Arthur Eichengrün or Felix Hoffmann. Bayer trademarked the name "heroin" for the drug diacetylmorphine and marketed it as a cough suppressant and non-addictive substitute for morphine from 1898 to 1910. Bayer also introduced phenobarbital, prontosil, the first widely used antibiotic and the subject of the 1939 Nobel Prize in Medicine, the antibiotic Cipro (ciprofloxacin), and Yaz (drospirenone) birth control pills. In 2014 Bayer bought MSD's consumer business, with brands such as Claritin, Coppertone and Dr. Scholl's. Its BayerCropscience business develops genetically modified crops and pesticides. Its materials science division makes polymers like polyurethanes and polycarbonate.
