Proposition 79

Sean Lynch opposes Prop 79 and offers a better alternative:

Cut the regulatory risk by fixing the drug approval process. Let Consumer’s Union (a prop 79 supporter of which I’m a member) and Underwriters Laboratories approve drugs instead of the FDA. Fix the tort system so that people don’t get awarded millions of dollars based on bad science. Then maybe we can talk about fixing the patent system and having more funding for drug research come from private non-profits instead of for-profit corporations and governments.

Update: Walter Olson has more.
