More money is spent on prescription drugs in America than in any other country in the world. We have all benefited in some way, maybe many ways, from the pharmaceutical industry. Antibiotics and vaccines have eradicated disease. There are drugs to treat cancer and AIDS. The pharmaceutical industry's products have saved and improved millions of lives. But overall, are we getting our money's worth? Because drug companies are making so much money and prices are so high, many people are asking 'Why?' Peter Jennings investigates if the current system is working, and are consumers and patients who spend billions of dollars each year on prescription drugs getting their money's worth?
