Drugs, Jail, and Monopoly: Business An HIV treatment cost taxpavers millions. The government patented it But a pharma giant is making billions Antiretroviral pills Truvada sit on a tray at Jack's Drug Store on Nov. 23, 2010, in San Anselmo, Calif. (Justin Sullivan/Getty Images) By Christopher Rowland March 26 at 7:26 PM Thomas Folks spent vears in his U.S Centers for Disease Control and Prevention lab developing a treatment to block deadly HI co AIDS V in monkeys. Then San Francis researcher Robert Grant, using $50 million in federal grants, proved the treatment worked in people who engaged in risky sex Their work-almost fully funded by U.S toxic-spill: socialistexan: whyyoustabbedme: https://www.washingtonpost.com/business/economy/pharma-giant-profits-from-hiv-treatment-funded-by-taxpayers-and-patented-by-the-government 1. Taxpayer-funded research discovers new use for HIV drug; 2. Company w/ monopoly on drug says gov cant patent it; 3. Company makes $3B on drug/year; 4. Taxpayers get no return on investment, ~80% who need treatment dont get it Our capitalist aristocratic elites commit mass murder and treason against the people, and make billions, some black guy gets caught with a joint and goes to jail for years… “American justice” sure is a joke This is incredibly common with pharmaceuticals in the US. Drugs are researched with public funds, patented by the government, but then they are given directly to a private corporation for billions (if not trillions) in profit for that corporation. 210 drugs from 2010 to 2016 benefited from this process. Kill capitalism before it kills humanity.

I’ve had people tell me that they “don’t have insurance right now” or “it’s too expensive” The company that makes truvada (Gilead) offers a copay card making the medication literally FREE to you. And furthermore my prescribing doctor said he would do anything to help get this medication to me at little to no cost.If you google “Gilead Copay Card” it will bring you to a page where you enroll- for free- and then you can save the image of the card till the physical one comes in the mail. Present it to your pharmacy and your script is literally FREE. THERE IS NO REASON TO NOT GET ON PrEP!!!And also side note being on PrEP doesn’t mean you should go out and get bred by every guy you meet. You should still practice safe sex because HIV isn’t the only STD out there. Don’t be gross. Wear a condom and get that truvada bitch
