“Depression and anxiety sort of run in my family but I always said I didn't have that affliction. Eventually my grandmother told me she could tell from some of the things I said that I did have some degree of depression. I wasn't convinced. Then I started taking Flavay and Flavay Plus and I felt a new positive psychological outlook. Sometimes I would take 2 capsules of each and sometimes 4 capsules of each since I had read online that some people like taking 4 of each better. When I ran out of Flavay and Flavay Plus I didn't reorder because I was feeling so good.
City Council candidate Bob Capano, for example, visited Tucker Carlson’s show in December to bash the idea. To him, they may as well be “legal shoot-up galleries.” “I’m all for giving addicts counseling and rehab, but to sentence them to a lifetime of addiction by basically encouraging (drug) use, I think, is wrong,” he tells Moneyish. Assemblymember Nicole Malliotakis, the presumptive Republican nominee for mayor, calls SIFs in New York “dead on arrival.” “I think it really shows that we are losing this battle if we are actually putting resources to provide a community center for people to come and inject illegal drugs,” she tells Moneyish. “The resources really should be put towards those who want to get off of heroin and have been unable to access a bed” in rehab facilities.
A July 2013 study by US Geological Survey scientist William Ellsworth links earthquakes to wastewater injection sites. In the four years from 2010-2013 the number of earthquakes of magnitude or greater in the central and eastern United States increased dramatically. After decades of a steady earthquake rate (average of 21 events/year), activity increased starting in 2001 and peaked at 188 earthquakes in 2011, including a record-breaking -magnitude earthquake near Prague, Oklahoma which was the strongest earthquake ever recorded in Oklahoma. USGS scientists have found that at some locations the increase in seismicity coincides with the injection of wastewater in deep disposal wells. Injection-induced earthquakes are thought to be caused by pressure changes due to excess fluid injected deep below the surface and are being dubbed “man-made” earthquakes.  On September 3, 2016, a -magnitude earthquake occurred near Pawnee, Oklahoma , followed by nine aftershocks between magnitudes and within three and one-half hours. The earthquake broke the previous record set five years earlier. Tremors were felt as far away as Memphis, Tennessee , and Gilbert, Arizona . Mary Fallin , the Oklahoma governor, declared a local emergency and shutdown orders for local disposal wells were ordered by the Oklahoma Corporation Commission.   Results of ongoing multi-year research on induced earthquakes by the United States Geological Survey (USGS) published in 2015 suggested that most of the significant earthquakes in Oklahoma, such as the 1952 magnitude El Reno earthquake may have been induced by deep injection of waste water by the oil industry.
