What's in the water?

Posted By on Tue, Jan 25, 2011 at 8:41 AM

Rep. Loy Mauch (please read this for some background) thinks it's something really horrible. I missed this one yesterday, but John Lyon reports that Mauch has introduced a bill that would require public water systems to disclose any chemical additives put in the water, including - get this - mood-altering drugs. Mauch said that discussions about adding lithium to public water supplies "to alter human mood imbalances, and statin drugs to affect human cholesterol … have increased.” Where did Mauch get this idea? Why, Secure Arkansas, of course.
