Several months ago there was a big fight in Congress about allowing people and pharmacies to import prescription drugs from non-USA countries, because they are cheaper than buying them here. The pharmaceutical makers arguement to the public was that these imported drugs could be unsafe. Of course, they failed to mention that the drugs in question were not merely the same chemically; they were manufactured by the exact same companies. It was not a matter of buying prescription drug xyz. It was a matter of buying Abc's version of prescription drug xyz. I wonder how this sat with non-USA countries; this implies that the drugs that Abc makes in or exports to Canada and Europe were somehow inferior. Like the USA would get the lots that passed QA, the the Europeans and Canadians would get the lots that ***failed*** QA. I doubt if this is the case, but it sure is weird. But a bigger issue for me is, I just can't stand being lied to. Anyone who lies to me is on my shit list. How can you ever trust such incredibly scummy people? To me, this shows the real quality of the characters of the pharmaceutical companies. I see them as ***drug pushers***, whose morality is similar to the other drug pushers we all admire so much.
