Promethazine should be sold OTC

Promethazine is a medicine sold by prescription here in the United States.  Overseas, you can get it OTC in some countries.  But since America is the “home of the enslaved” and the “land of the fee,” we’re stuck.  Big time.  It might cost anywhere between ~ $30 to $150 or more for the doctor’s visit to get the prescription, and for the uninsured, that might entail a $500 or higher emergency medical services bill.  In addition to the druggist’s charges.

Our medical system is filled with middlemen and corporations leeching patients for every possible fee, and this should not be the case.  No one should profit off of sickness, period, so, when will promethazine finally make it to OTC status?  The day people stop being greedy.
