RE: [IP] can you really buy and sell infusion sets on ebay?



 In Massachusetts you need a prescription for syringes. They tried to pass a
law to make them over the counter but it failed. I was one of the people
that fought this a many health plans would not pay for them if they were
OTC.

I wonder why infusion sets would require a prescription and syringes would
not.
In my opinion prescriptions being required always involved pharmaceutical
control and protecting their interests, not consumer interests. Since the
FDA is largely gone, there is nothing there for the consumer.
