Too late, Laurie!

Who has the best short version of a "white paper" or exec summary on
this issue?  I'm getting deluged!

Our state just began its first take-back program (via an astute city
Pretreatment Coordinator) last Saturday and between their press release
and the latest "news" from the A.P., CNN and FOX, more, "In the
beginning..." questions are being generated than I have, "Now, you ain't
gonna believe this..." answers.

Subject: [Pharmwaste] LOTS of articles

Too many articles from around the country as companion pieces to the AP
article to post individually - if you want to check them out, look at
http://www.environmentalhealthnews.org/ and go to "More News From Today"
in the bottom left column. 

The AP article made the front page of the Tallahassee Democrat today. I
think we'll all be getting more calls after this series of articles! Get
your answers ready...
