Massachusetts proposes new fee for marijuana dispensaries
Counsel & Heal
Although medicinal marijuana is technically illegal in the federal court, several states have legalized this drug for medical purposes. In Massachusetts, medicinal marijuana was first approved in November. This law allows people with cancer, HIV and Parkinson's disease to ask for a marijuana prescription, which would be provided if their primary care physicians believe that this form of medication is necessary.

Increasing demand for emergency nursing
By Archita Datta Majumdar
For most Americans, an emergency room visit is on the top of their minds as much as 911 when in a crisis. An ER is also open to all patients to get immediate medical attention instead having to wait for doctor appointments.

Nurses want 'healthcare versions' of user-friendly personal apps
MedCity News
Nurses are the unsung heroes of the hospital who navigate crappy software on outdated hardware to keep you healthy — and it needs to stop. Technology innovators need to start focusing on new, consumer-like user experiences and better end-to-end communications software and hardware. Otherwise, nurses are going to start using their own devices, which creates obvious issues in privacy and data management.

Disability and discrimination at the doctor's office
The New York Times
It's been nearly 23 years since the Americans With Disabilities Act, a federal law prohibiting discrimination against people with disabilities, went into effect. Despite its unequivocal language, studies in recent years have revealed that disabled patients tend not only to be in poorer health, but also to receive inadequate preventive care and to experience worse outcomes.
