The U.S. reversed its stance against generic AIDS meds on May 16, offering to send the drugs to developing countries—after they pass a new, accelerated FDA approval system.

On May 10, the California State Assembly passed a bill that relieves needle exchanges from pesky biweekly reviews and exempts syringe recipients from arrest.

The FDA’s new approval process snubs the World Health Organization’s internationally sanctioned drug-qualification program, extending the wait for much-needed meds.

On May 13, New Jersey’s attorney general nixed Atlantic City’s proposed mobile needle exchange. NJ is one of only five states that prohibit over-the-counter syringe sales.
