Letter to the editor: Pharmaceutical drug problem grows

One reason for the drug crisis in America is the fact that pharmaceutical drugs are too easy to obtain.  We are bombarded with media commercials for pharmaceutical drugs that can be delivered right to your front door.

Every day we see a barrage of commercials on television, radio, the Internet and in magazines and newspapers for pharmaceutical drugs that “relieve pain and make you feel better” – even though the side effects of those drugs might be deadly.

There was a time when drug companies were not allowed to do commercial advertisements on pharmaceutical drugs.  I believe it is time that we change the law and stop advertising these deadly drugs. If you agree, tell your elected representatives:  No more commercial advertising of pharmaceutical drugs!
