In Virginia, the corporations won the fight to not have to prioritize the lives of the many patients and to continue the risking of lives due to forced mail-order pharmacy. I cannot comprehend or understand how the senators and the regulators across our nation cannot understand the great risk posed to the most vulnerable patients. Medications are lost, stolen, delayed, mishandled, not stored at safe temperatures, and delivered to the wrong address. This is not safe. This is life-threatening. When we receive the medications through the hands of our trusted pharmacist, this risk is eliminated. Why do they not see us as worthy of this option?
