    problem isnt in google but in pharma companies that want to get money from google. Google showing ads selling drugs that people can't afford to get form drug stores. Those that want to get drugs will one way or another. Look at how its done in other countries – no governments try to go as far as interfering into what people are doing online as here. Why should we? This all looks like pharma, via washington, going after google to get some compensation for what it can't get. And cnn showing drug ads all the time. Do you think that germany or UK will go after google for it trying to sell drugs from austria? Vicodin, oxycotton etc.. those things can be bought in so many ways google as big as it is won't stop it if it stops ads from face pharm shops. it starts with parents and family...
