there is obviously big price difference between prescription drugs costs inside America and outside of it. Kind of like with narcotic drugs. But, with narcotics we know there are large, highly organized smuggling operations, many of which reputedly run by people of Mexican ethnic background. So, it would be natural to expect some of these smuggling groups to try expand operations to serve additional markets, like the prescription drugs for poor people market. Further, certain segments of Hispanics reputedly have strong social networks within their communities (unlike the generally atomized Anglos) and might be able to use these networks to get in touch with the smugglers relatively easily, if they so wished.
Well, so the above is all hypotheses and inferences. How do things actually work in this area? How come we don’t hear about the country being awash with low cost prescription drugs imported through these channels with DEA asking Congress for tactical nukes to better wage the war on (prescription) drugs?
