GENERAL
Drug ad's should be banned as consumers have insufficient knowledge of the medical sciences to judge if a drug is suitable for them or not. This is the wrong public for the companies to be advertising to as the only way they can get the drugs is via a Doctor. The doctor does not need to have the patient telling him which drug he should be prescribing based on a TV ad.
