To give you an example...I live in So. Cal. and within a two hour (or so) drive to Mexico. I was in need of some medication. The medication I needed, I couldn't get here without a prescription. I can get a prescription easy, that's not the problem, but the medication I needed was close to $400.00 for one months worth. (It's not covered under insurance because it is not "needed"...
sounds like Viagra...but no.) Considering I needed at least 3 months worth of the medicine, I'd be forking out $1,200.00 for it. I find that with a little research that one company that makes the medicine is better...and the same company that supplies the U.S. market under a different name!! I get the same medicine in Mexico for 1/12 the cost. I get 3 months of it for $100.00 over the counter. Medicine is one example of what I mentioned above. Other countries, while there are drawbacks certainly, are more open to trying new and innovative ideas. Americans have law suits to worry about because we here are all law suit crazy.
