Has DeMint lost his marbles?
why would one aks this?
I have mild Asthma, it was severe as a child. Some years ago, I was at a show in Vegas and I had been years from an Attack. The show's special effect mist turned me blue. The Primatine mist inhaler that was in the shop that my wife ran and found pretty much fixed me in 30 seconds. While I don't think I was going to die, certainly an ambulance and hospital trip was coming.
I have carried one of those Primatine mists since then(95) and I do have an HFA pro air. Pro air does not work as quickly and it is prescription only.
This asinine ban needs exemptions. How much CFC are in these things anyway? It can't be much.
I can only assume you misread the article. DeMint has great intentions. Like another poster above, I had an asthma attack one night and my wife inadvertently tossed out my inhaler, which I carelessly left near a stack of paper. I was in dire straights in northern Wisconsin and found a 24 hour Walgreens. It was either that or a 45 mile ride to a hospital. For some, this is serious stuff. So as I said at the beginning, I hope you misread te article and commented in error.
The tiny amount of CFC's in those little inhalers would NOT ruin deplete the ozone layer.
There are times, for an asthma suffer when they are very badly needed...you can't always carry a prescription around.
