I work in a hospital and I don't believe for a second that medical staff, let alone residents, are allowed to purchase drugs from suppliers on behalf of the hospital. All drug purchasing would be done thru the in-house pharmacy with a lot of administrative oversight, since that would be a huge legal liability for the hospital.
Having said that, how many people on GH would really be affected by counterfeit drugs?
1. Maxie - I'd assume that since she is a heart transplant recipiant, she'd be on anti-rejection drugs for the rest of her life.
2. Robin and her baby - She's on alot of meds for her HIV and her baby would be getting the same once it's born.
3. Sonny - he's bipolar, as is his portrayer, and a former mobster. Lookout! I can just see the interviews and hear the emmy talk now. It's making me ill just thinking about it.
Max Hunter would thus incurr the rath of Police Commissioner Mac Scorpio, his colleague and Robin's beau Patrick, Jason Morgan et al., Nicholas Cassadine. So does the CD storyline die with Logan, since he seems to be the only connection at this point? What criminal is going to be behind it all? And what do Sonny/Jason deal illegally in anyways? I can't believe it would be counterfeit drugs given their relationship to Robin.
