Well, that was $2 million wasted...

Turning a blind eye to science, Oklahoma bought $2 million worth of hydroxychloroquine as battle Covid-19, with "multiple other uses and “that money will not have gone to waste in any respect"...

And now, they're asking for help as they can't sell it back, as they can't come up with any uses for it...

[quote]The Oklahoma Attorney General’s Office has been tasked with attempting to return a $2 million stockpile of a malaria drug once touted by former President Donald Trump as a way to treat the coronavirus.

In April, Gov. Kevin Stitt, who ordered the hydroxychloroquine purchase, defended it by saying that while it may not be a useful treatment for the coronavirus, the drug had multiple other uses and “that money will not have gone to waste in any respect.”

But nearly a year later the state is trying to offload the drug back to its original supplier, California-based FFF Enterprises, Inc, a private pharmaceutical wholesaler. [/quote]

Stupid is as stupid does.

Who needs science when we have politicians to dictate reality?

[@802348,JoeyFoxx] Maybe Oklahoma can send it to Mar-a-Lago and to the My Pillow Guy.

My only objection, they would take it and resell it whilst making another un verifiable claim. Unless it’s used for its original purpose. [@339454,windinhishair]

[@8567,Mindful] It does have a valid therapeutic use. Hopefully it is used in the right way for the right patients.

Good luck with that!
They should make Gov.Stitt pay for it himself for buying medication that had no scientific consensus behind its use related to Covid19

Trump received 64.5% of the Oklahoma vote in 2020. This was predictable.

[@9416,Northwest] There was also a major power demand increase from people shining lights up their asses, and a run on chlorine.

Maybe there will be a lot of mosquitoes this summer.

[@903658,BelovedTed] maybe, but if so, it's not smart they're trying to get rid of them before this summer lol

Trump has always been a snake oil salesman, anyone who buys on his recommendations deserves to be fleeced.
Mindful · 51-55, F
Well yes. Agreed. Fleeced is the right word. His name is a designer name.[@1088262,independentone]
