Alexander:Oh, those are my drugs.
Florence:You're buying your medication from overseas?
Alexander:I have no choice. This drug isn't FDA-approved yet.
Florence:Isn't it dangerous to take a drug that isn't approved?
Alexander:Not if it's been approved in other countries.
This drug is considered experimental here, but has been used in other countries safely for years.
Florence:But shouldn't you just wait?
How long could the process take anyway?
Alexander:You have no idea.
It can take years for a drug to be approved here, especially those that aren't fast-tracked.
Florence:That's hard to believe.
First, it has to be tested on animals or in a lab, and then it has to go through clinical trials.
Only then is it put through a rigorous review by the FDA, which alone can take years.
Florence:You're right. I had no idea.
Alexander:In the meantime,I'm suffering needlessly.
Florence:You can't legally import the drug for your own use, right?
Alexander:That's right,but I feel like I have to circumvent the law to get the medicine I need.
Florence:So how does it feel to be an outlaw?
