Elementary School Children Will Get Free Vitamins

SALISBURY, Md. (AP) — A program beginning next month will provide free multivitamins to elementary school children in Wicomico County.

A program coordinated by Riverside Pharmacy and the school system will allow parents to go to Riverside Pharmacy or their pediatrician’s office to get the vitamins.

Parents must fill out a questionnaire and can pick up the vitamins every month.

    Is the pharmacy giving away these vitamins or am I paying for someone’s kids vitamins with my taxes?

    You’re paying for it either from cig taxes or just a simple redistribution of income. Why not take the kids away and let them become wards of the state. Better yet if little Suzzie says her mommy didn’t give her the vitamins then suzzie’s mommy looses her welfare, subsidized housing, and food stamps.
