Xanax,Viagra,Ambien,Cipro,Soma,Zocor,Adipex Discount

With only minimal knowledge of the American healthcare system, I can really only speculate on the usefulness of this. In Canada, prescription drug costs have a reputation for being considerably lower than their American counterparts, which probably explains the Simpsons episode in which Homer becomes a drug smuggler for Canadian prescription drugs.

So, when I see a citizen's drug card being offered on eBay, I guess it's a good thing, but the seller is promoting the idea that it can be used to purchase more "fun" medications such as Viagra or the adipex diet pill. While I don't doubt that they have their uses, but shouldn't pharmacare and subsidized health care go towards things that people kinda need to function on a daily basis, like their insulin shots and cancer drugs?
