1,518 voters participated in this survey

Emma Gonzales, a 9-year-old from Utah, experienced extreme coughing one weekend which landed her in the ER. She was giving an inhaler due to the trouble she had breathing during these coughing fits. On the following Monday she had another coughing fit at school. When she pulled out her inhaler, her teacher immediately took her to the office, where her inhaler was taken away from her. The staff said that because her name was not on it and her parents hadn't filled out the proper paperwork, they could not let her have the medication.
