Pharma's Obscene Profits

Department: Letters

Congratulations to Maureen Rouhi! Finally, somebody points out the obscene profits made by the pharmaceutical industry while the rest of the country struggles to pay for necessary medications (C&EN, June 8, page 3). I love the argument that they need these profits for research and development; the profits are after R&D and go to shareholders. Unfortunately, most of the public doesn't realize what a scam that is.
