My sister who lives in Canada was telling me just the other day that some doctors there set up their practices in supermarkets. As long as they can reach the people who need them, I say good idea. And why the comment "in exchange for cash?" What else do doctors work for? Chickens?

^^In the story the doctor was prescribing drugs illegally and taking cash payments under the table, and at times ina coffee cup. Undercover cameras caught all the action.

I agree it is shady for him to be selling the stuff but it isn't anything other doctors don't do. I don't condone it but it's not at all uncommon. The difference here is he is doing it in a coffee shop rather than an office.

Prescribing drugs illegally is entrepreneurial and "good stuff"? Sick.

This man should have his licensed revoke. It's extremely concerning that you support this abuse of power. These drugs are for medical usage. Not recreational sale.

Doctors work for money, but under the law and ethics codes. Prescribing drugs illegally at a Starbucks (in exchange for cash) is not how a doctor is supposed to work. You don't see this as a problem?

Not all doctors prescribe drugs to addicts.

The patients are providing him with their medical records first. I didn't see anything in the video that would have me believe he's just providing drugs to addicts..Why do you think him prescribing drugs is illegal?
He's a doctor, isn't that what they do?..is it the fact that he's doing it in Starbucks that you disaprove of?...and why?

Beats them clogging up the ER looking for them.

These really should be sold OTC; would save society a lot of expense and trouble.
