No such thing as free samples

The lede:

Without brand-name drug samples to hand out, physicians are three times more likely to rescribe generic medications for their uninsured patients, according to a study in the Septmber Southern Medical Journal.

The study looked at prescribing habits of 70 doctors at a university-affiliated internal medicine practice in the nine months before and after an office move meant losing access to a secure place to store drug samples.

The whole shebang.
