I’ll be the first to admit that I don’t understand the motivation here:
Argentina has begun distributing a free state-produced version of the erection-boosting drug Viagra for the first time, in a move intended to curb its misuse, health authorities announced Thursday.
They said 200,000 doses of sildenafil, better known under the Viagra brand name, is to be distributed free of charge through the public health network of the province of Santa Fe.
The drug is being produced in Santa Fe by the state-owned pharmaceutical firm LIFSE, which plans to eventually distributed it nationally.
Drug can be misused. Solution: distribute free version. Why can’t they do this with meth? The tweakers will expire faster than a Pfizer patent, and we’ll be able to get proper cold medicine again.
If you’re thinking about flying down to Buenos Aires, though, Fausta has a word of caution:
Those of you interested in medical tourism will like to know that Santa Fe is 467 km from Buenos Aires.
If your trip exceeds four hours, consult a physician. Or a travel agent.
