Screw wine. If I'm terminally ill I want premium vodka and access to a Hunter S Thompson-level stash.

That's a great start. But yeah there should also be every cannabinoid in existence available. As long as the emphysema patients stick to the cookies no harm done and they feel better.

Yes, but being in a hospital, a glass of Boone's Farm will cost 650 Euros.

Socialist/socialized drinking, my friend.

What about drug interactions with alcohol?
Or is it a "well, they're dying anyway..." kind of situation?

This.  If there are interactions though what better place to prevent/treat them than a hospital

It might be more for the family than the patient, "My crazy mother is easier to deal with if I've got a drink in my hand."

I hope in my final days I will get a home pour of Malbec. But think it unlikely.

There really is no better buzz than a nice stone chased with red wine.

Why not?   When my diabetic grandmother was in the hospital dying, she asked me for a big chocolate milk shake.   Of course I got her one.   THESE PEOPLE ARE DYING, GIVE THEM WHATEVER THEY WANT.

Contrart to what American media will tell you, a glass of wine or two is good for you.

In France it's even common for doctors to recommend that pregnant women drink red wine. (High iron content, apparently.)

I went into false labor a few times with my kid. Doctor (who specialized in high risk pregnancies, mind you), told me to drink one glass of red wine a night. It would be good for my blood pressure, and better for the baby.

/Kid is alive and well. And I am still a lush.

'S OK. Obamacare is gonna put in pot cafe's for us next year at the hospitals.
VA is gonna take a little longer, but I really think the PTSD guys and gals deserve a break today.
Thanks Obama!

Wouldn't you agree?

"Red" wine ain't always what it used to be.
The advice was sound 20 years ago.
Today's wine "products" need close inspection.

One ounce of ethanol daily, really does not matter what kind of alcohol, but the zhit with the alcohol can be real bad for you.
Skip the sugars, salts, flavors, taints, congeners, colors, flavor enhancers, 'all that jazz", your target is just the ounce.

What the fark are you blathering about?

Red wine is the same product today that it was 20 years ago, it's the same product it was 200 years ago.  We're not talking about Boone's Farm here.
