Hi, and thanks for doing this AMA. Two questions for you:

1) What is the approximate cost of the process for a patient who takes this action? I am guessing this is not covered by insurance...

2) Is there any data on the utilization rates of this program yet? By that I mean do we know how common participation among terminal patients in the state is? Is this a difficult service to access due to physicians being reluctant or organizations being unwilling to let their doctors participate?

What role do you see race playing in this issue? Specifically that opioid use has been described as a public health issue and affects more white Americans, while other drugs epidemics are viewed through a criminal lens.
