    Turf wars. Drug dealers don't want too much competition.

    Because the powers that be don't want it that way. They want to have them made places with zero standards. That way people get sicker and buy more meds

    What difference does it make where they’re manufactured? All they do is make people sicker than the medical conditions they’re supposed to be treating. Allopathic medicine always does that. And if you don’t like my answer then maybe you shouldn’t post a question like that in “alternative” medicine....

    You know why medications are often cheaper in Mexico?

    They have looser laws regarding impurity, so when an American company has a bad batch, they dump it there.

    they moved the manufacturing to china to save a few bucks . the bad part is china ALWAYS cuts corners . they will put less med in each pill . they have poor sanitation at the plants , and high pollution .

    They are, but in the republic they are sold at a profit. Foreign nations threaten those who discovered the medicines, telling them if they do not liscense them to their firms, they will just steal the rights and make them themselves. The PRC is not the only nation stealing " intellectual property".

    You can can go into any drug store and buy medications manufactured in the United States. Pharmaceutical companies also sell these medications overseas.

      Health insurance companies tell you which brands you’re allowed to take. Pharmacies will refuse to sell you the brand that you want, even if you offer to pay cash.

    Because drug companies cut their costs by 80% overnight by shipping their factories overseas. And because Americans like glass shards in their medications.
