"There's a small but hopefully growing subculture of people who are buying the active ingredients of drugs," he says. "It's encouraging to see people take control of their own health."
There used to be a time when you could walk to your corner pharmacy and get a bottle of laudanum, or some cocaine. This did not work out well. There are far too many stupid or murderous people to allow this. I'm sure these guys have the best of intentions but when the idiots start rolling up with lawsuits because they didn't assemble their pen correctly or overdosed or used old medicine or got an air bubble into their veins or the cheap needle they used broke off into their leg or any of the infinite number of horrible things that will happen, they will be wiped out.
There are very good reasons we don't allow Doctor Mom to build her own x-ray machine to save a buck. Just because this medical device is simple doesn't mean it isn't a medical grade device that should be constructed in your Maker lab.
Let's get this straightened out:
On one hand:
You get a few imbeciles who cannot be trusted with a pencil because they will jam it in their eye first chance and sue everyone and their cat for their gross stupidity. These Darwin Award Nominees might Darwin themselves out compared to the MILLIONS who know how to operate a syringe (which is all an EpiPen really is).
On the other hand:
People discard this cheaper DIY solution, including just buying the drug and insulin syringes, and stick with getting butt fucked without lube by Mylan. This causes millions of people whom can't afford the drug (because they don't have insurance, the insurance company won't pay for it because they are assclowns, etc.) to drop dead like flies because of complications due to Anaphylactic shock or Asthma.
But, hey: The Darwin Award Nominees live to kill themselves in another dumbass way!
So, which is it? A few Darwin Award Nominees who will off themselves anyways either by EpiPencil or a REAL pencil, or millions who Mylan would gladly ass fuck for more money?
I'll GLADLY hand out the Darwin Award Statues to those morons if it means people can live without taking it in the ass by Mylan or dying because of their greed.
