Delaware must change culture on guns

Open carry of a modern sporting rifle deemed an assault rifle at the pro-Second Amendment rally outside Legislative Hall in Dover, held by the Delaware Citizens for the 2nd Amendment and the Delaware 3% United Patriots.

This past weekend my family was out running errands and we had a disturbing experience. Two men approached our vehicle, one was holding a sign and the other had a large assault rifle strapped to his chest over what appeared to be some sort of tactical vest. They walked right up to our vehicle and the man with the gun was mere inches from my 7-year-old daughter’s face as she was strapped into her child restraint.

My child should never have to endure an assault rifle being held inches from her face. I should never have to fear armed intimidation while running errands. But after this weekend’s events, I am left feeling that the right to threaten and intimidate the public are more important than the safety concerns I have for my family. I recognize that the right to bear arms and open carry is legal in Delaware, armed extremists of any kind can have deadly consequences, as we’ve seen in other states.

Nov. 3 is quickly approaching, and while I’m not traditionally a one-issue voter, this experience will have a profound impact on the boxes I check in that voting booth. The presence of weapons was solely for the purpose of intimidation, the installation of fear, and a display of nonexistent power. If you are as alarmed as I am, I hope you will join me on election day in voting for candidates who will make our communities safer from gun violence.

Medical marijuana supply must diversify

I have been a medical marijuana patient in Delaware now for three years. Over those three years, I have witnessed an increase in the number of people getting approved for their cards. But there has been no subsequent rise in product availability.

In fact, the opposite has been true. Since I obtained my card, the number of strains has decreased exponentially, and the availability of key strains for my condition have all but disappeared.

I applauded the effort to create a CBD rich card for the public to obtain to get help with anxiety and other conditions for which CBD has been proven effective. However, this is also the strain that I have to use for my conditions as well. Every dispensary has been unable to keep a stock of these specific products.

I have a full medical card, so I have thought about trying THC-A products to see if they offer any relief from the chronic pain that I manage, but low and behold these products are also unavailable.

It is absolutely insane to me that we are not addressing this issue in the fastest way possible, given how much the state charges me for this card. I pay for this, not to help the state coffers, but to help manage my chronic nerve pain. The state must do better. Allow home-grow, increase the number of growers in the state, or allow growers to have large enough facilities to keep up with demand. Or, better yet, do all three!

Abstract

Background: Biliary system ascariasis can be a rare cause of acute abdomen.

Patient report: A 70-year-old woman presented with abdominal pain for two weeks. She complained of a right upper quadrant (RUQ) pain, intermittent vomiting and weight loss. Physical examination showed RUQ and epigastric tenderness without rebound tenderness or guarding. Laboratory finding exhibited leukocytosis and mildly elevated liver enzymes.

Results: Abdominal sonography showed distended gallbladder and a tubular lesion inside the common bile duct (CBD) in favor of a parasitic lesion. A large ascaris roundworm and blood clots were extracted from the CBD by endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography and sphincterotomy. After 7 days, the disease process was complicated with a subhepatic abscess formation which was managed conservatively. Finally, the patient was discharged home in fair condition after 12 days of hospitalization.

Conclusions: Ascariasis should be considered in endemic areas and early endoscopic intervention and medical therapy can be effective for extrahepatic involvement.

Keywords: Abdominal abscess; abdominal pain; ascariasis; common bile duct; endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography.

Any good CBD cartridges with no THC?

Not sure if this is the place to ask, I’m just getting started with vaping so I’m sorry if I sound dumb! I’m currently using a THC cart but I’m back in a state where that’s not legal and I don’t always like how it makes me feel so I was wondering if there’s cartridges that are just CBD that you can order online? If so, what are some good companies? I don’t want to just order from anywhere. Thank you for any information!
