The Other Drug War

This is a wonderful PBS resource of a program that appeared in December 2003 and concerns the marketing of prescription drugs and high prices. One can watch the entire 60 minute program in several sections including that includes The Story of Maine's Bold Move, What's at Stake for the Industry, New Offensives in the War, Marketing Drugs, Oregon's Solution and Updates on the Story. There is also a lot of supportive information including links to articles and interviews. Be sure to use the Teacher's Guide, too.
