26. Yes.

The rates of what the drugs would be is an issue. Providing it at the cost where whomever makes the most money while selling it to the most people for the right price is who would benefit. It would not address all the problems. Just a start. The thing is, the thinking on drugs is so entrenched in US politicians that it just won't happen anytime soon. Repubs especially would have a heart attack and many many Dems would too.
