The Prime Minister has announced plans to de regulate parts of the pharmaceutical laws to allow supermarkets to sell some common drugs.
The plans will emulate those found in countries such as the USA and Britain where supermarkets are allowed to sell non prescription drugs such as Paracetamol and Aspirin products direct from their shelves.
The plan should drive down the price of every day drugs as happened in Britain and make them more easily purchased from the eight till late supermarkets.
However, pharmacists are up in arms over the statement citing large scale unemployment within their sector, casual consumption of drugs and are vowing to fight the changes.
But as we found in Britain those claims will be unfounded and economics will win the day leading to the supermarkets dominating the market and even opening their own prescription desks.
