As Twitchy reported, the flu is spreading and tents have been erected at one hospital for the influx of flu patients. Some stoners are battling the flu with bong hits and weed (no, really), but across the country, non-tokers are taking other precautions: Masks.

Flu freakout means I get to wear a mask at the doctor  smart on their part #influenzaA #positive ??

That’s right; visiting is being cut down at many hospitals.

In other countries, too.

Some doctor’s offices and hospitals are requiring masks. And some people are taking that protection into their own hands.
