And that solution is. . . to become a drug rep. A fake drug rep. And get access to all the free free brand name (no generics here) medications your heart desires. The story at Pharmalot states that a well dressed man:
“walked into a physician’s office in East Northport, New York, which is on Long Island, and helped himself to about $300 worth of drugs from a shelf after claiming he was a pharma sales rep.”
The man was apparently later caught. Perhaps he was sent to jail. I say send him to D.C., this may be the kind of creative thinking we need to reduce our health care costs!

We here at caduceusblog (though there’s only 2 of us) would like to take this opportunity to wish a speedy recovery to one of our readers who has caught a cold and is taking an antibiotic. This worries us, not out of any concern we have for our readers.

We here at the Caduceuscloud (though there’s only two of us) would like to wish you, our dear reader (literally, we only have one reader), the happiest of Thanksgivings. As we count our many blessings during this special time of year, I feel that it’s important that I reflect on what is perhaps the most important blessing of all. . . that I am not a TSA agent.
