Relative Cost

Today I went to the drug store. Here was my bill:
10 pills suphedrine: Rs 7
50 mg diazepam: Rs 15
1 bag cotton balls: Rs 110

Yup, thats right, cotton balls cost 7 times Valium. And no, I did not have a prescription for the diazepam. In case you're now concerned that I have a drug problem, let me ease your mind. The 50 mg of diazepam (Valium) was in 5mg pills, which I cut in half before taking. I have TMJ and sometimes need to take a muscle relaxer before bed so that I can open my mouth without excrutiating pain when I wake up in the morning.
