Remember that poor girl who died from eating a peanut on the playground in VA last year? The governor there signed a law last month allocating $200K to schools to stock epi and set up plans to use it for students experiencing anaphylaxis. Apparent;y a few states already have it on the books :

Very interesting. It lists Missouri as one of the states that already has the law. I'm going to have to look into that, because I'm 99% sure that our school doesn't stock it. I guess they could have adopted it in the last few months.

It's so sad, though, that it takes a child's death to get change.
