Drugs and Lawyers

On occasion, I watch network television programming.  I have noticed that between 4:00 PM and 6:00 PM many of the associated advertisements are hawking prescription-type drugs.  These drugs usually have exotic names with either an “x” or a “z” in the mix.  Such promotions invariably end with a narrator rushing through a long list of possible side effects.

The ads between 7:00 PM and 9:00 PM are different. Many of them promote legal firms bringing class action lawsuits against the drugs (and drug manufacturers) advertised in the earlier hours a couple years ago.
