Why are my prescriptions so expensive?

There are a lot reasons drugs are so damn expensive, gang. I'm sure research & development are most of it, but some of it is because of sheer stupidity and waste on the pharmaceutical company's part.

Case in point: If you remember, I spent a February weekend in LA at a drug company meeting, and they asked me to bill them for my expenses. So I sent them my receipt ($32) for airport parking.

I got my $32 check today. It was sent by FedEx priority overnight delivery from Philadelphia.

The cost of sending me the check was $10.55.

For the record, I didn't ask for emergency delivery. I would have been happy with a 42 cent stamp.
