Scotland makes tampons and pads FREE!

"Scottish MPs have backed plans to make products such as tampons and sanitary pads free at designated public places such as community centres, youth clubs and pharmacies. The plan passed its first vote in the devolved Scottish Parliament."

"The Period Products (Free Provision) Scotland Bill was proposed by Scottish MP Monica Lennon, who first submitted a draft proposal in 2017. The annual cost is expected to be around 24.1 million pounds ($47.5 million)."

"These are not luxury items," Ms Lennon said, adding that the bill was about "period dignity". Ms Lennon joined a rally gathered outside the Scottish Parliament building in Edinburgh, and held a sign which said "Access to menstrual products is a right. Period."

Congresswoman Jackie Speier tweeted, "Way to go Scotland, showing that it can and should be done! We should start with making them free in public bathrooms."

3. Cheeto has the power to order the same be done here - but won't.

Unless, of course, it's for his tootsie-wootsie.
