Today in The Case for Small Government blog, I read a post that I agree with. The author affirmed that government need not develop more legislation to protect perscription drugs from being re-imported. I couldn't agree more! I'm so sick of pharmaceutical companies asking the American public to cry them a river. They are making billions of dollars at our expense, and often ailing health. If they are so determined to stop "illegal" importing and reproduction of their drugs, they should cough up some of their hefty profits to improve measures themselves! While I understand that a lot of time, and money goes into their research, they are making thousands of times more in profits!!! They are susceptible to the same things other producers of goods are. For example fashion designers create clothing, and accessories that are often reproduced as knock offs in China and sold around the world for a fraction of the cost. Also, movie makers experience piracy of their media around the globe, and lose money as a result. I'm not saying it's ideal, but it is reality, so I highly suggest drug companies come to terms with it, and become proactive, rather than reactive by rubbing shoulders with Uncle Sam to solve their problems.
