    I thought that the U.S. wanted to import drugs from Canada because the Medicare system made the drugs less expensive to buy than Americans could buy in their own country. Personally the one controllable drug I take is an acid that they used to use to clean drugs and then throw it away and now they make it into a tablet and sell it as a product.

    Nicely written to highlight some of gaps in our system that need to be addressed for now and future. Thanks for bringing this to our attention.
