thanks to a suggestion from Amnat77 i have purchased medicines from a canadian pharmacy website. http://www.canadamedicineshop.com/ the drugs are sourced out of India, generics. they are cheap. a fraction of the cost in the US. medicine that retails for $350/month in the US is $30/month out of canada. i can get it because i am computer literate but what about the old folk who don't know? they suffer. we pay the highest price in the world for our care and medicines. why? the CEOs are making millions off the backs of the poor and the sick and the old. the love of money is the root of all evil.
