WTF !!!! I was accused of practicing drug without a license due to genetic self-experimentation and showing people how to access publicly available information.
The truth is … https://t.co/j9Yoy0rKPR

Biohackers are individuals who carry out medical experiments outside of university labs and recognized companies. Zayner found popularity online for a raft of stunts, including carrying fecal transplants and injecting his own arm with CRISPR. He is also known for his contempt for the US Food and Drug Administration, which he claims is blocking the change and putting lives in danger.
His company, Odin, sells various DIY biology tests, including a $ 209 kit that produces florescent yeast. But either Odin or any other biohacker has not yet developed any extraordinary genetic treatment. In a social media post, Zayner wrote, "" I have not given anybody anything to inject or use, any material deliberately sold to cure a disease and never claims to provide treatment or healing because I know this day will come. "added that he was unfairly targeted for" showing people how to access publicly available information. "
California's medical board requested an interview with Zayner on June 11, informing him that he is "obliged to bring a lawyer." It is not clear what will happen next, but California drug training may be a misdemeanor or a felony, and carry penalties up to three years in jail and a $ 10,000 fine.
