Why are we seeing advertisements for medication that is available by prescription only?

I was stewing about this question when CBS's Sunday Morning had a segment on it. How timely is that? (Am I becoming more psychic? No. I've stewed about this question before. But I digress.)

There are only two countries in the world that allow this kind of marketing. The USA and New Zealand. All the rest ban this type of advertisement.... and New Zealand is considering banning it too.

I'm tired of all these hands trying to get into my pockets. It might have been exciting in my twenties, but its really pissing me off, now!
