PODCAST: A Doctor Discusses The Hazards Of Tear Gas, Pepper Spray And ‘Rubber’ Bullets, Plus 3 Things To Know

Play episode

Friend of the Daily Detroit podcast Dr. Paul Thomas of Plum Health joins Jer on today’s show to talk all about the health and medical risks of tear gas, pepper spray, and rubber bullets, which it turns out mostly aren’t made of rubber. It’s a timely topic, given the use of these things by heavy-handed police departments across the country in response to the Black Lives Matter protests.

Also, we discuss the cancellation of the 2020 Mackinac Policy Conference, after it was postponed to August, Macomb County setting a possible end date to its emergency declaration over the coronavirus, and news about the Detroit City FC women’s team and the 2020 season being canceled. You can listen in the player below.
