RANT: “Drug Stores”

How did the Gooferment get involved in our getting “drug” from the “drug store”?

My fiancé, who’s an amputee and has constant phantom pain, was having trouble getting approval to try Lyrica.  She happened to take a trip to Egypt and, while in town, she stopped into the local “drug store”.  She asked the pharmacist about Lyrica and it turns out it, like most non-abused drugs, is available over the counter without a prescription.

Why can’t we have that service here in the USA?
