The worst of the anti-vaxxers are the parents of the children they want to send to school without a mask. They are, basically, putting their children at risk of dying. I have watched a couple of them, on TV, say that they just didn't know (after they lost a child). They were upset and all of that. These are people who are living in another reality and they now get to pay the price. I am really not sure that their children should be taken away from them before they get them killed. I also watched a number of them assault cars with doctors in them because they supported masking school kids.

Its really hard to work up sympathy for these folks. They won't trust vaccines but they seem to be delighted to take any experimental thing the hospital might have.

Hospital? You mean the feed store, or some scammer on the internet. There were a lot of people who drank bleach after Trump suggested it! There are still snake-oil salesmen popping up on Craig's List, the internet, or Right Wing media trying to sell bleach or silver-based "Covid Remedies".

The only good thing about those people sending their kids to school without masks, is that the kids are at much less risk (but not zero risk) than their parents when they bring the infection home. And the greatest risk is that they will kill a resident unvaccinated grandparent or two.

Silly me. Here I was thinking that it might be a crime to peddle dangerous substances that kill people when they ingest them...something about
"Mumble mumble dangerous drugs...mumble mumble protecting the community from dangerous drug peddlers...mumble mumble war on drugs"

Or was that only for drugs that involve partying?
I guess it's unreasonable to demand that we devote all those magnificent DEA resources to tracking down people who peddle spurious and deadly medical remedies for killer plagues.

People do die from accidental opiate and cocaine overdoses, so I guess the DEA should have some oversight for those drug classes. Nobody ever died from a weed overdose. Maybe they got fat from eating too many munchies after they got stoned. As far as ivermectin goes, it actually is being demonized as "horse de-wormer", when it is a legitimate human prescription drug for parasites. The inventor actually got the Nobel Prize for it, and it has been used by billions of people world-wide with an excellent safety record. It's on WHO's essential drug list!

The FDA is actually neutral on it now: They say they don't have enough information on it to recommend for or against it's use for Covid-19. There are a number of drug trials underway.

They're not neutral on folks using the stuff from the animal feed shops.

That's actually more a dose problem than anything else. The horse paste comes in a syringe with markings for 250 to 1250 pounds your horse weighs. The stuff is 1.87% ivermectin and you are supposed to take 200-300 ug/kg. Figuring how much to take involves some math most people have not done since high school (if ever). And according to the FLCCC (the biggest American advocates) the dose is quite important. That's one of their biggest complaints: That some trials have used far too little given only once, or far too much causing toxic effects.
