Do the Reddit AMA mods charge you any kind of fee to allow you to use this post as a pretty blatant advertisement? How much do they charge?

Not the author, but you’re already seeing a frightening number of clinics opening up that are claiming stem cell infusions as a cure all. I work in the biotech field, and there are many clinically proven usages of stem cells. But they typically involve full stem cell transplants where you are re-grafting your own immune system (or that of a donor) back onto itself after wiping out cancer with chemotherapy, for instance. These clinics are just infusions of banked stem cells into joints, tumors, or localized areas.

I have friends even chasing these clinics down because the clinics prey on the hopelessness of a terminal diagnosis. I am terrified that one of them will someday catch a charismatic founder or leader like Holmes and suddenly take off without the clinical proof this industry demands.

Especially being in Jeff Sessions’ home state. That dude hates weed more than almost any other public official.

Any interest in ever locking yourselves in a windowless room to write another album? Or was this one time enough to keep you guys satisfied on that front?

Did you really cross off "kill someone" from that joke poster in your living room in front of some floozie from the bar?
