Stopping the Health Care Bill because it will become a Health Hazard. In the bill, doctors will only be allowed to prescribe RX Drugs. Lawyers. across the nation, are now suing to stop many drug companies because their Rx Drugs have such horrible side effects that harm or ruin peoples lives and their futures. Please look at: Lawsuits against Dangerous Drugs. Example: Antidepressants, cause people to Gain Weight, Diabetes medications cause people to Gain Weight and increase their BMI. Statins now all are being sued actually cause people to Gain Weight and even women with no history are getting Diabetes. Antidepressant - anxiety drugs are the worst. Hallucinations, wild mood swings, memory loss "mind in a fog", do strange things to harm themselves or harm others. These drugs can actually drive people to do criminal things. Worst: the birth defects are just horrible. Please do look at these drugs (even horrible birth defects, kidney cancer, liver cancer, pancreatic cancer. In the Health Care Bill all of these drugs are a must for patients. If they don't want to take them, they will be threatened and the doctors will drop them as a patient. What is worse, is that the FDA was given international power and that means that these horrible drugs will be given to other countries. Oklahoma is such a great state where the great majority are fantastic, lifting, caring people. People who rush out to help others. Would it be possible for Oklahoma to take a BIG STAND against these horrible Rx Drugs? We don't want Oklahomans harmed! What can be done? Use The Free Market: take all advertising off of the TV. Change the Health Care bill so that people can USE BOTH, if the want to: choose to take Nutrients like Trace Minerals and Vitamins - along with Drugs. People should have a choice in their lives and never threatened or forced to take drugs. You should see what is in some of these drugs given the children! One drug can even have boys and men grow breasts! Oklahoma IS a great State! Let Oklahoma stand out against harm. Pull the harm alarm and make a difference in this country! That is what we need: A CHOICE! Especially with our own children. Too many children are on drugs when it is just a matter, with some, that they have poor nutrition.

When there isn't room at the crisis center for the guy who on hour earlier was going to jump off a bridge, there are not enough beds. When you are three times more likely to get sent to jail than to the hospital when you have a serious mental illness, then there aren't enough beds. When the recommended number of beds is 50/100,000 people but your state has 11, there are not enough beds. If you think there are enough beds, then it is time to redefine crisis.

While eating at a restaurant in Lawton, I noticed that a man in a wheelchair looked very uncomfortable. His wheelchair did not fit under the table so he had to sit sideways. The man was not able to see his wife or reach his plate without discomfort. There are so many of our service men and women who have lost limbs and people who have become handicapped through illnesses or accidents that I think it would be wonderful if a provision in a handicapped law could allow for some tables to be adjustable to allow these people support.

E-Cigs are an easy way for smokers to improve their health and move away from harmful tobacco. Yet, this smoking alternative is under attack by many nanny-ists both local and nationwide. There are many efforts to lump these products which contain no tobacco in with tobacco containing products. This needs to stop. Oklahoma needs to take a stand with the health of its citizens and allow the market for e-cigs to flourish with no undue regulation.

The ACA should be refused in Oklahoma. It should be covered by the State. Take the Federal Government to court.

It's time Oklahoma shows the rest of the US that we are not fooled by prohibitionist lies and embrace Cannabis for the medicinal values it provides.

Pass the bill that Brad Henry Vetoed when he was in office. The bill that was overridden in the House and only a couple of votes short of a Senate override, before we got many newly elected Prolife House and Senate members.

Continue investment in mental health treatment and prevention programs. Specifically, add more emergency mental health care (crisis centers) facilities throughout the state. Fund Systems of Care for children and families of children with serious emotional disturbances. This is money much better spent than in prisons and jails.

Throughout history and up until 1937,Cannabis was used in our pharmacopia for all kinds of medicines. It is still a medicinal plant but if you want to treat your illness with this plant today it can ruin your life and keep you from ever having a decent job again. A recent Oklahoma poll shows that 71.2% of Oklahomans agree that we should have access to this plant as medicine legally. I would like to challenge all House and Senate members to please listen to the citizens of this state and allow for use of cannabis again. People should have the right to treat their bodies in a manner that suits them best.

Adoption should be for children that need homes. The adoption industry is making a Large profit from infant adoption, charging up to $50,000 for a baby. This profit has led to widespread deception towards expecting fathers and coercion of expecting mothers. Children are not commodities and should not be transferred to strangers when natural family is available to love and provide for them.
