    Tell me though, how do you enjoy having to go to the doctor to get access to certain drugs? Prescription drugs are a pretty cool thing, eh? Must be fun supporting actions that limit peoples choices like that.
    Sure, over the counter access to antibiotics is a great idea....

    They do the later all the time. I used to play tennis on the weekends and every morning some prostitute was in a porta potty ****ing some dude. Just eww..

    I didn't call the cops or anything because it wasn't my business, but come the **** on, you could at least pick a place a little less disgusting.

    Well, leaving it up to doctors hasn't avoided the problem.

    I stopped to use a porta potty on a run a few months ago only to open it up and find some nasty crack whore and her John in it. Pretty gross. Maybe if prostitution were decriminalized, the local police could focus on keeping it out of parks and areas like that rather than just setting up stings like they do now.

    It curbs it. In China you can buy antibiotics over the counter and as a result bacterial resistance is exploding there. The problem with having them over the counter is that people buy them when they have the cold or flu. They are of course totally ineffective against viral infections, but that only creates more resistance in bacteria. (of course the widespread agricultural usage is another huge problem)
