In this documentary filmmaker Chris Bell(Bigger Stronger Faster) is exposing Big Pharma, its marketing practices and their impact on the overwhelming level of addiction to prescription drugs in North America. Vince Vaughn and Peter Billingsley were executive producers on this compelling documentary.

This is a must see! We all know about it, but we need to be reminded from time to time, because we are all victims of brilliant pharmaceutical marketing moto, " Whatever your symptoms are, we have solution for it!" The worst epidemic that we face today is prescription abuse. And yes, there is a hope! We as consumers, we can do something about it!
