HBO’s ‘VICE’ Explores Why Drugs Are So Darn Expensive

VICE’s Hamilton Morris walks us through it.


As most Americans unfortunately know, prescription drugs are expensive and they’re not getting any cheaper. Specifically, this is nothing less than unfair for individuals who are dependent on drugs for the majority or entirety of his/her lifetime. HBO’S ‘VICE’ explores just why drug prices are so darn expensive as well as some alternative pathways to medicine. The description for the video reads:

Americans today spend more on pharmaceuticals per capita than anyone else in the world, and more than one in five say they have trouble affording their prescription drugs. But they might not know about the alternative pathways to medicine. VICE’s Hamilton Morris explores the world of clandestine chemists, DIY bio hackers, and grey markets to see if a more democratized medicinal future is indeed possible.
