    that I was thinking of.

    We should reflect upon the fact that these 3 professions - pharmacy, medicine and the law - engender a great deal of intrinsic trust, because we the public believe that only the best and the brightest can aspire to these professions in the first place and we place our confidence in the fact that these  professions have oaths and/or codes of ethics and professional oversight boards.

    Men and women who value profit over all are in these professions just as they are in any other, despite any naive beliefs we have to the contrary. They can lie and cheat the public as easily as any door to door contractor with "leftover asphalt".
