I also agree with a lot of it. This would be my proposal:

Allow people to buy these types of drugs without a prescription. This would include most newer antidepressants, the newer sleep drugs, certain benzos, and ADD drugs. All are relatively benign when used responsibly.

Instead of a doctor's prescription, pharmacists who pass an acredidation exam would be able to sell you the drugs. The pharmacist would look at your current meds to evaluate potential side effects, and help you decide what to take. The pharm doc could see if you take drugs for high blood pressure, diabetes, etc. They could charge maybe $10 per pharmacy consultation or whatever.

Pharmacists are very well trained and their expertice is under-used. (By the way, I'm not a pharmacist and have no relatives are are).

This could expedite a person's search for his or her best treatment.
