Lastly, the amount of personal bankruptcies will be reduced. Many Americans file for bankruptcy because of their medical bills, if the rates go down and more people can afford coverage then it would make sense that the amount of bankruptcies would also go down. Even though the pros all help and seem great the cons to this policy also holds valid points. First, “18 million of the uninsured will be forced to go under Medicaid, while the rest will have to accept another government program. Even so, millions will remain uninsured,” (Pros and cons of Obama care June 29, 2012).
Cipla's generic inexpensive antiretroviral drugs were a true game changer. Lives that were considered lost were being saved. It also talks of the efforts of Western government, working on behalf of industry to hinder and cut off supplies of affordable generic drugs by the means of bi-lateral and multilateral trade agreements which low and middle income countries are placed under enormous pressure to sign. High prices are the only trade off for industries that spend a large amount on R & D to find new medicines. Formation of cartels can also be seen in the movie.
My theory also is that eventually people will start bidding on artificial organs and the richer people will have say over a family that doesn't have a lot of money. If doctors wanted to replace original organs with artificial ones, it would take a lot of perfecting and obligating a clean bill of health for the patient. Who, if anyone, should be a prime candidate for these types of artificial/synthetic replacements? Do you feel that anyone should have access to them? Even a life-long smoker or alcoholic who knowingly subjected themselves to harmful substances?
Bill S.348 and bill H.R.486 would benefit all parties involved economically in the long run. If laws are put in place to increase educational demands and monitoring of medication history it will lead to the decrease of this type of drug abuse (www.ncsl.org). Patients inability to “doctor shop” will allow for less prescribing which will decrease street selling and crime related costs. According to Pisgah Laboratories in North Carolina, adding drug deterrent technology will increase the federal budget by about $200 billion overall (www.pigsahlabs.com). Cons: It will cost the federal government more money now due to having to pay out grants, as well as the pharmaceutical companies due to having to add drug deterrent ingredients to medications
Morphine is derived from Opium. Many people were suffering from alcohol addiction and Morphine was used as the “cure” for the alcohol addiction. Morphine is far worse than alcohol and doctors were well aware. Doctors preferred to have people addicted to Morphine because it was socially and domestically safer. Alcoholics were more likely to beat their wives and children and cause havoc upon the city (“The Problem of Pain Relief”).
Once it becomes easier to manipulate the person freely, the government in the case of Fahrenheit 451 is capable to engineering a whole society as they please. The second result that censorship of society and the banning of books brings is increasing the pleasure and happiness which objects bring, rather than the emotional connection between mankind. This in turn turns the happiness to be very shallow and short-lasting, increasing and stimulating the economy but severely hurting the human mind. Our last result that will be discussed in this essay is the way censorship changes the whole society. The immense diversity of books that we each read as an individual make us unique in many different ways that we cannot
There are many ways in which prescription fraud can occur. Because of the plethora of ways, pharmacists must be alert and responsible in their actions. Many seem to believe that electronic prescribing has been found to reduce the number of errors and statistics and data reflects that. America cannot be ignorant in this matter. The new electronic system not being implemented is like going through life with a contagious deadly disease, you have the money for the cure, but yet you complain, sulk, and feel sorry for yourself instead of going to get the cure.
Amnesty is over rated and it is killing our country, economy and culture. We are a country build by immigrants but they did it legally. I am all for legal immigration and even more supportive of making citizenship more of a streamlined smooth process but a mandatory one. Something can and should be done. Think of the benefits to our school and healthcare systems alone if those hundreds of billions of dollars annually were not taken from them but pumped back into them.
Legalizing the drug would upset few but in particular drug cartels with a control in the market. As I said earlier the demand could be met by the government regulating the product causing cartels to fall out and be non existent. With all of those reason I believe that crime declining is the biggest.too many people are being killed over the
Customs officers are expected to do their job and put a stop to the drug trafficking but the temptation of making some extra money may be extremely strong. Money is the root of all evil and a lot of people are very selfish. For an example, they know the effects drugs have on a society as a whole but if the price is high enough, they may turn their head and allow the drugs to be brought in. Not only is this wrong, it is damaging to everyone. “It is believed that the loss of the drug trafficking industry in Mexico would cause that country’s economy to shrink by over 63 percent” (DrugAbuse.net, (2012), para.
