Let's Legalize It: Bone Marrow
NBC'S "Rock Center with Brian Williams" features a segment on tonight's show (10 p.m.) about the Institute for Justice's legal challenge to the outdated federal law (National Organ Transplant Act in 1984, sponsored by Al Gore and Orrin Hatch) that makes it illegal to receive compensation for bone marrow.
Watch a preview above.
Note: Bone marrow isn't even an organ, it's a "sponge-like tissue found in the center of certain bones"; so why was it even included in the "National Organ Transplant Act" in the first place? And unlike organs, bone marrow regenerates within a matter of weeks.
