ARKANSAS, CO- A transgender woman named Gwendolyn Herzig spoke to a reporter at Park West Pharmacy in Little Rock, Arkansas on February 22, 2023, about an experience she had when testifying about a bill that restricts gender-affirming care for minors. An Arkansas lawmaker asked her about her genitalia, which is an example of the kind of rhetoric that transgender people are facing at statehouses as they speak out against new bills targeting their rights.

In other news, a bipartisan bill has been passed in the House of Colorado that would allow for automated kiosks to dispense prescriptions via video link with a live pharmacist. The kiosks would be pre-loaded with prescriptions and could improve access to medication in underserved areas or at odd hours. The bill, HB23-1195, has Republican cosponsors and will be set for its first Senate hearing in late March. Although some concerns have been raised by the Colorado Pharmacists Society, supporters of the bill say that it would not result in extra costs for patients compared to using a physical pharmacy.
