    Ironically, the price of hemp has held steady or declined in the last four or five years.

    Seems odd, doesn't it?

    I pay 3 dollars , 9 dollars or 22 dollars for my prescriptions depending on the overall cost of the drug. Must suck to be you.

    helps to have government funded health health care and bennies, eh?

    people are awfully quick to reap their own benefits but not care about others'.

    and, of course, it's ok for people in other countries to get our drugs way cheaper than we do?

    be glad it isn't your kid who needs the $23,000 a vile anti-spasm medication which costs that because of capital improvements by the pharmaceutical company, not because of the costs of its manufacture.

    it might also have helped if this admin didn't agree not to negotiate prices despite having massive bargaining power... but why would the corporatists want to do that.

    I'm just grateful for our PBS scheme. I need to take a number of medicines and I think without our scheme it would be difficult for me to afford them and I'm still working full time.
