I would LOVE to see an Antibiotics camp, where you can go and trade somethig for the drugs that will SAVE YOUR LIFE out there on ther playa without getting ripped off in Gerlack, or having to go through the whole leaving and coming back in sceneario which is a serious pain in the ass.
You will all (but hopefully not) understand eventually someday via first hand experience.
But I STILL say antibiotics as a gift are life threatening and STUPID.
This is a great idea. Absolute genius. Anybody who would criticize this should first suffer an illness out there and then see if you still feel sharing medicine to be "stupid" or illegal...
Maybe this idea will never lead to 24h free clinic, but I would still think it might just be possible that individual MDs might be interested in offering part-time services, at least if someone else provided the meds or money for them and premises as their part of the gift. (Hell, if I was fully lisenced to practice in US, I might be willing to do it, but I am not that even in Finland, so forget about it.
Janka, I'll take a leap here and suppose that the medical profession in Finland along with liability laws as they apply to malpractice suits against doctors are quite different from what we have in the US.

Good point, I forgot that little bit of cultural differences.
(Naturally, we have malpractice laws here too. But as I have understood it - and I mean no offense - our legal system handles them with somewhat more reasonably than that of the US.)[/i]
Antibiotics would be for people who NEED them, get it? But if you NEED them and they arent there, then what?
If you desperately need medicine and it isnt available, then what good are federal or state laws and regulations?
So how many of you have been sick on the playa? Any?
What would Burning Man be if it was 35,000 people all looking out for their own ass.
They simply wont be enlighted to this subject until they slip and fall off an art car at midnight, suffer a compound leg fracture, and lie there screaming into the night for help.
