I don’t know about you, but the term “Physician Assisted” conjures in my mind the presence of a doctor overseeing each step in the process.
Here’s the problem. This law does not require an ongoing relationship with a physician – a relationship where the physician would know a history, say, of depression. You could shop around, find a physician who will give you the drugs, get a prescription for the drugs…and gives you enough of a narcotic to kill yourself, guaranteed, if you take it in one dose.
