Canada Homeopathy's Shaky Science Gets Boost From New Law

Last week in Ontario, Canada’s most populous province, a new law was enacted that regulates practitioners of homeopathic medicine. The Ontario Homeopathy Act provides a mechanism for homeopaths to self-regulate in a similar manner to doctors and nurses.

Just the concept in general, or something particularly about that headline?

The idea that long-debunked pseudoscience becomes more legitimate just because a government somewhere passed a law promoting it.

Definitely needs regulation, though. Otherwise those water spirits will be everywhere. When you dump a homeopathic medicine down the sink, it is diluted trillions of times - making it that much stronger. It's poisoning our rivers and oceans. On the other hand, I've never seen a toilet with malaria so it has that going for it.
