Chaos: Thanx for the research. I’ll go look-up the statute and read it. Note that some GSLs are more protective than others.

Your last line about staying in ur “ scope of practice” is almost certainly correct. But, what we were discussing is the possible administration of Scheduled drugs, perhaps in radio contact with a physician or paramedic , on the ground, to whom you have described symptoms and observations. That’s the more likely scenario, e.g. a fellow passenger who shows symptoms of stroke, heart attack, overdose, anaphylaxis? That’s what those medical supplies are for.

I think Doug Ritter made it clear that these medications were intended for use by qualified medical practitioners who were actually on the flight. They have the knowledge but need the tools to intervene.
