Does anyone realize that it cost huge amount of money to develop new medicines and most new medicines are never approved?
That is why drug companies need ways to recover the costs of those medicines that are approved otherwise their research into new medicines is going to very limited

Of course people realize that.
What is your point and why are you trying to make your point on a Q&A site...?

many also know that research into new meds is directed by profit-chasing. Which means that research into meds for minor "first world" ailments gets more funding than research into meds for things that kill millions in "third world" countries.
Legislation around patents probably means that a lot of research is redundant
