Big Pharma's bread is buttered with government butter. They made a deal with the devil. Now the devil has come to collect. Bad for the rest of us. Good for them.

Speaking of drugs off pattent.

Let us look at anti-anxiety drugs. Pot - if legal - could replace a significant part of a $40 bn. a year market. Now guess who is one of the chief proponents of pot prohibition? Big Pharma.

I have zero sympathy for rent seekers.


AS long as there is demand there will be development. It may be done differently though.

BTW there is a body of research out there beginning to show that "addiction" is really self medication for medically unrecognized pain.

Google [ M. Simon drugs ] to find out what I have learned.

It is no wonder we are not winning the drug war. Drugs are not the problem.
