Should drug companies be allowed to advertise on television, the radio or in print media?


In the U.S. pharmaceutical companies fill the airwaves and print media with all types of drugs surrounding a myriad of conditions. Human nature being what it is, many people are now self diagnosing illnesses and what type of medicines they should be receiving. I've discussed this with doctors and they all agree that it drives them crazy when a patient tells them what type of medicine they should be taking. Also, do our children really need to be exposed about the advantages of taking Viagra? I'll be curious what others think about this.

    I've never seen a Hardees ad, but you make a lot of sense. I think many have a weak will and are always looking to self medicate and the drug companies give them the guidance they need to con a doctor for a prescription.
