CBD is federally legal and doesn’t show up on drug tests. You shouldn’t have to report it.

inflammatory responses on the skin. My question is: I have a clearance. Should I report this to Ethics before using? This may sound silly, but I know absolutely nothing about marijuana, cbd oil, and either’s differences or effects.

I’m a veteran, and I’m now eligible for the Covid vaccine. Managed to snag an appointment. My wife also got hers this morning — she’s eligible as an educator. They made her fill out and sign an attestation form, saying she’s eligible. There is nowhere on the attestation form to say that you are eligible as a veteran. Do I check a different box, write in “other”, or lie on the form? I wasn’t willing to lie about my eligibility, but it seems silly to be held back by a form that’s not up to date.

Does anyone go to a clinic several hours from their home? I did IVF in early 2020 that resulted in a successful fresh transfer. I have 7 embryos frozen at my fertility clinic, but we moved about 6 hours away. We are starting to talk about being ready to move forward with FET, but I don’t know if I should try to find a clinic to move the embryos to me or plan to travel so we don’t have to move the embryos.
