stock epinephrine laws across the US

States across the United States are starting to permit places of public accommodation (hotels, convention centers, restaurants, theme parks) to stock epinephrine on site in an effort to provide a quicker response to those individuals who are having anaphylactic reactions.

The National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases advises that an intramuscular injection of epinephrine be administered immediately after symptoms begin. The delayed use of epinephrine in allergic reactions has been associated with deaths due to anaphylaxis.

It would nice to have “stock” epinephrine as commonplace as AED’s and fire extinguishers are in public venues across the country.
