    As there is a shortage of drugs nobody can blame theave Prime Minister for getting medical treatment in the USA.Keith Rowley would have to wait until doomsday for the viagra he needed in T&T. Therefore is was necessary to seek medical treatment in the USA.As the shortage of drugs continues political anylists recommend the use of real drugs as a substitute for medical drugs. This will enhance their quality of life and will also boost the illicit drug trade which is dominating T&T and supporting political parties and the wellbeing of politicians.
