Recently, one pharmacist from Washington, D.C. revealed that he is feeling guilty for prescribing medication to some individuals from Congress.
He believes that these medications can influence the decisions made by these high-ranking government officials.
Several minor government officials are forced to do a drug test.
These officials are only responsible for some paperwork and procedures and they had to compel a drug test, while the higher-level government workers, who have bigger responsibility avoided this random drug test.
The pharmacist who came forward is Mike Kim and he claimed that he holds sensitive information about very popular and important people from D.C. He recently noticed a strange pattern from the officials in D.C. and spoke ab0ut it to Erin Mershon from STAT News. Apparently, he has been giving Alzheimer’s medication to several officials from Congress.
Kim listed therapies for conditions such as Alzheimer and diabetes. He stated: “At first it’s cool, and then you realize, I’m filling some drugs that are for some pretty serious health problems as well. And these are the people that are running the country.”
“It makes you kind of sit back and say, ‘Wow, they’re making the highest laws of the land and they might not even remember what happened yesterday,’” he added.
His pharmaceutical company delivers around 100 prescriptions per day. Even though his company is not that big, it is located very close to the Capitol building.
These are the people who are leading our country and if their medications impact their judgment and making decisions, then maybe it should be the end of their careers. For example, Senator John McCain is in his 80’s and despite his fight against brain cancer, he played a huge role in the judgment of the ObamaCare issue. The treatment for brain cancer requires a lot of medication and therapies. However, he stays in office and has an impact on very important issues.
The government leaders need to be tested for drugs and their capability of how they perform their jobs need to be reviewed.
