Water has a monetary value simply because there are too dang many people in the world. A few hundred years ago, even people living in desert areas could find the water they needed for basic use because there were so few of them. Now you have millions living in areas of the world where water is scarce, and it takes buttloads of money and massive engineering projects to get it to them.

I can go find a dozen streams to drink out of within 5 miles of me. Water cost nothing. Having water delivered to my kitchen tap costs a little bit though.


I cant go drink H1N1 flu vaccine from those streams. Someone has to do research and build factories and Make it. Which COST THEM MONEY. I do not have the RIGHT to their labor and ingenuity.

Some people think that taking medication for acid reflux or enlarged prostates is worth the .000001% chance of it giving you a heart attack or making you off yourself.

Where did I say they added side effects, exactly?

They spend way more on advertising than they do on actual research. If it weren't for the government funded base research that goes on in universities and research labs we probably wouldn't ever get anywhere. We'd just get a new viagra every decade or so.

Remember Polio?

Exactly.

I do find it a bit ironic you're challenging a doctor's opinion, with several years of medical school under their belts, as not being able to tell us what we should be taking when you're preaching to us the medical benefits of smoking pot based on links from NORML.

It's hilarious that you use this metaphor. These companies also fuck us through our water supplies. Pharmaceutical testing for drinking water is something the EPA needs to address quickly.
