Senate Approves Plan To Let Psychologists Prescribe Meds

People suffering from depression or mental illness could soon have more treatment options.  The State senate approved a bill that would let psychologists prescribe the meds they need.  The psychologists would only be allowed to write prescriptions if they get a Masters Degree in Pharmacology and pass a national exam to show they understand how medicines mix.  Opponents argue the psychologists won't have anywhere near enough training to fully understand how the medications will affect the patients.
