Which Came First?

The liquor or the drugs? While in Playa del Carmen, I saw a lot of things outside my prudish Canadian cultural realm. I found these two signs amusing:
I did not venture into the Drugs & Liquors store; however, I did go into the Tequila & Drugstore several times for tequila samples, souvenirs and tampons. Muy bien!

I would be going in both stores, I am a price comparing shopper. Usually I don't purchase drugs as impulse items, but sometimes on the weekends I do.

When I was in Mexico the first time years ago, I got really sick. I was able to purchase 20 pills of Lomotil for $20 (I think that's how you spell it) in the hotel lobby. It helped a bit. When I got back in the States, I went to the pharmacy to ask if I could purchase more. The pharmacist informed me that it was a controlled substance here that costs about $1/pill. Oops.
