Drugs for Sale
Cabo San Lucas was a stop on my Mexican Riviera cruise. During the shore excursion, we were taken to this market place:
The market place had an unusual amount of pharmacy type stores. And these stores were proudly displaying signs of the drugs they sold. "What's the big deal?" I wondered. "Don't all pharmacies have these drugs?"
The big deal was you don't need a prescription. The stores sell drugs over-the-counter that in the U.S. are prescription only.
Viagra, Retin-A, Penicillin, Zoloft, Amoxicilin, Prilosec. Whatever you wanted, they had it.
And, you don't even need to buy a full bottle! Just walk up to the counter and tell the employee how many pills you want. Your order is placed in a small baggie or in a regular pill bottle. Depending on how many you want.
If you're feeling depressed just go pick up some Zoloft. Can't get erect, go pick up some Viagra. No doctor visit. No exam. No blood work. No testing.
Places like this might make for some great one-stop-shopping. Condoms, Viagra and Penicillin all with no questions asked.
Maybe Cabo San Lucas is on to something?
