"Is Anthrax Bad?"

Dave Chappelle fans will recall the famous clip when Tyrone asked this question when he mistakenly ingested anthrax, thinking it was cocaine.  Classic.

  • Does the risk of someone taking the medications in an ill-advised fashion mean the rest of us shouldn't have access to it in our homes?
  • Are you scared/heartened to know your government is at least debating the issue of whether to make doxycycline available to you?
