According to the report, between June 9, 2016 and December 31, 2017, 191 people requested the prescription, and 111 of them were reported to have died after ingesting the medication.

Christian Burkin, spokesperson for California Assembly member Susan Talamantes Eggman, said that the data may be limited, but the numbers show that the End of Life Option Act is being implemented the way Eggman and other authors of the law intended it to work.

Alexandra Snyder, an attorney for Life Legal Defense Foundation and critic of the law, told the Times that there is no way to determine whether a patient was coerced into taking the drug.
A snapshot of the patients who took advantage of the law mirrors what's been seen in OR, which was the first state to legalize the practice almost two decades ago.
As compared to OR, the suicide cases are much lower in California because the law is not completely rooted in this state. Fifty-nine percent of those who died were suffering from cancer.
