    Take it as you want, but I think the CVS pharmacy acted unethically. There is nothing forcing them (that I know of) to give her the life saving medication, but they still put her in danger over a buck. As an asthmatic and a pharmacy technician I am disgusted by their actions. Pharmacies are healthcare centers, the primary focus is the patients health (at least it is where I work). It's unethical, inhumane, and very unpatriotic to deny someone life saving medicine over one stupid dollar. I don't see how the tech (assuming a tech was ringing them up) can sleep at night.

    I can understand you thinking that way.

    I put in the charity is freely giving and not through coercion to be clear on what charity is. You wanted others to be charitible to this couple, but you also want the ones doing the giving to do so automatically.

    Nope, I never assume anything. I put up a valid variation of what could have happened. I wasn't there and neither was you.

    It's disturbing that helping another human being from possibly dying isn't an automatic reaction.

    Now we're back to emotion. All inhalers are put behind the counter as the result of the War on Drugs, so this includes Primatine Mist. Primatine Mist can be bought without a prescription. Again, if she had taken the time to grab her inhaler, as she said herself that she left it at home, then she wouldn't have been in the situation she was in.

    I never said it was, but I did say that how was anyone else in the store supposed to know what was going on when the couple failed to let them know what was needed to be done. If someone needed a dollar and asked me for it I would have given it once I was informed of what it was to be used for. I would not have given a dollar for someone's next crack hit.

    I was raised with Christian values. Despite the six verses on homosexuality in the Bible, I'm quite aware of the hundreds on helping the poor and sick and loving your neighbor.

    The word "chiarity" translates to "love" in the Bible. Love is something that you do give to your neighbor freely and automatically. These people had no love in their hearts.

    Nope, I never assume anything. I put up a valid variation of what could have happened. I wasn't there and neither was you.
    You were presenting it as if it was what happened. That is not exactly intellectually honest.

    We will never know because of the sensationalistic journalism to paint x corporation as evil.
    That is what the press does. However, it is clear that even if it was as the article paints it, you feel strongly that the people could have watched the woman die and there would have been nothing wrong with that, and I find that to be interesting way to priortize values. It gives me quite the window into how you percieve the world and your place in it.

    Emotion? We are talking about saving a human life. Inhalers are put behind the counter because they require prescriptions from a doctor. They are not OCT items due to the fact that for some patients they may be dangerous and should only be used as directed by a physician/pharmacist. You can't just sell albuterol steroid inhalers to anyone for any reason. This isn't a result on the War on Drugs, its a result of good medical practice. The only "high" you get from a rescue inhaler is a dizziness associated with oxygen deprivation (because the medication is a steroid and not oxygen). This is how the War on Drugs works. The Controlled Substances Act stages drugs in certain catagories. You have your CV, CIV, CIII, CII, and CI. CI are illegal, they are drugs like heroine and cocaine. CII are legal controlled substances like oxycodon and morphine. CIII are controlled drugs like vicodin and ambien. However, this is not the reason why drugs are behind the shelf. It's all about good medical practice. Not just anyone should take metformin, it's only beneficial if you have high blood sugar. If you don't it's dangerous. Not anyone should use a rescue inhaler. It's a steroid that acts to reduce inflammation in the lungs.

    I'm sorry, but forgetting to bring a rescue inhaler doesn't merit allowing someone to die of an asthma attack.

    Do you have chronic bronchitis? I hope you get well I say screw lung diseases in general. Air is free

    And wth? There are like 60 votes supporting CVS, and about 5 min ago there were only 40(ish). Poll trolling is annoying.
