Re: Price Hiking of Drugs only in the US of A

"$750 a pill in the USA while 10¢ a pill as the top end price just about everywhere else. American democracy in action or inaction?"

This sick bastard was and is trying to keep sick people from getting treatment.

An unscrupulous but rational business man would have figured out how to maximise profit. At $4,500 for six pills, he isn't going to have many customers. At that price, it would be a lot cheaper to take a flight to London, take six pills, and fly home (perfectly legal), or take a flight to London, buy 60 tablets, hide them in your suitcase and take them home (not legal, but they are not going to re-train their drug sniffer dogs to catch you). Or of course order from Canada. $20, $50 or maybe even $100 would have maximised profits.
