Terminally Ill Patients May Soon Take Experimental Drugs

Terminally ill patients will be able to take experimental drugs under a bill that’s going to Gov. Rick Scott. The Senate passed the bill yesterday on a 39-1 vote. If Scott signs it, dying people will be able to take experimental drugs as long as the medicines have gone through the first phase of federal approval. Proponents say such patients should not have to wait for final approval.
