Famous biohacking Josiah Zayner said that is under investigation for what is practicing medicine without a license. In the past NASA scientist, known in social networks for their improvised medical procedures, Zeiner received a letter from the California Department for consumer Affairs after he complained for the “practice of medicine without a license.” Although anyone can file a complaint with the medical Board of California, the fact that she is considering, means that the charges are credible.
The biohacking judged for unauthorized medicine
Biohacker are the people who conduct medical experiments outside of University laboratories and accredited companies. Seiner famous on the Internet for his stunts, including the implementation of faecal transplantation and injection of CRISPR in your hands. He is also well known for his contempt to the Management on control over products and medicines of the United States, which he accuses that blocks innovation and threatens people’s lives.
His company, the Odin sells a number of homemade biological tests including kit for $ 209, from which you can make fluorescent yeast. But they are The Odin, nor any other biohacking has not developed any significant genetic therapies. In his post on social media Seiner wrote: “I never did give anything to the injection or use, never sold any materials intended for the treatment of diseases, and has never claimed to provide treatment or medication, because I knew that this day would come”. He claims that he is being persecuted illegally because he shows people how to access public knowledge.
WTF!!!! I have been accused of practicing medicine without a license because of genetic self-experimentation and showing people how to access publicly available knowledge.
The truth is… https://t.co/j9Yoy0rKPR

The medical Board of California has requested an interview with Syneron June 11, informing him that he may invite a lawyer, but not necessarily. It is unclear what will happen next, but illegal practice of medicine in California can be a misdemeanor or a criminal offense and is punishable by a prison sentence of up to three years and a fine of $ 10,000.
