    Now that you mention it, I seem to remember having a patient on an ethanol drip after he drank his lava lamp when I was an intern.

    Guy probably drank the lamp after smoking too much weed.  ?

    Yes, we had ethanol drips when I was a resident, but those VA memories when I was a student...wow.  I'll never forget that ornery vietnam vet with uncontrolled IDDM who presented with DKA and nec fasc.  Started off on the medicine service (DKA) before coming to me on surgery (nec fasc) in the middle of the night.  Honest to God, my intern went to the store and bought dry ice and we froze his leg until the OR started running in the morning.  As they say, the standard of care is local, right?

        So, if you search all the publications for the first author of that paper, you get quite a humorous list of topics ...

        Everything from eels to mushrooms to rock concerts to lava lamps to adventures in the Amazon. And that's just page one!

          We lived in a state during the time marijuana was discussed, voted upon, and legalized.

          I found it interesting to observe the cultural shift in a society when something so taboo is suddenly allowed.

          More specifically, many "medical" items are typically more expensive than standard items. However, this isn't the case with "medical" marijuana - people want the card so because it costs less than non-medical weed.
