Yesterday, Canadian regulators removed the popular ADHD drug, Adderall XR, from shelves in Canada, over concerns that it was causing heart problems and deaths. Senator Charles Grassley, of Iowa, apparently less concerned with his citizens' well-being than with his pharmaceutical buddies PR, claims that the US Food and Drug Administration asked Canada not to do this.
Now. A: The US does not actually have the ability to dictate what other countries governments do, unless we invade them, which doesn't seem to be a great plan. B: $#@%^@##$!$!!!!!!!
