Commentary, sarcasm and snide remarks from a Florida resident of over thirty years. Being a glutton for punishment is a requirement for residency here. Who am I? I've been called a moonbat by Michelle Malkin, a Right Wing Nut by Daily Kos, and middle of the road by Florida blog State of Sunshine. Tell me what you think.

Free Drugs

We're talking prescription medications, not narcotics.

CAPE CORAL, Fla. -- Seven popular antibiotics will be available for free from Publix supermarkets for people with prescriptions, the company and Gov. Charlie Crist said Monday.

Fourteen-day supplies of the seven drugs, among the most commonly prescribed, will be available at all 684 of the chain's pharmacies in states.

The prescription antibiotics available under the program include amoxicillin, cephalexin, penicillin VK and erythromycin.

The company joins other retailers that offer discounted drug programs, including K-Mart and Wal-Mart Stores Inc., but Publix Super Markets Inc. officials say the company is the first large regional chain to offer certain drugs at no cost.
I guess Publix is doing this in an effort to draw more prescription customers to their stores. Nothing wrong with that, but the wife and I will continue to use Winn-Dixie.
