    Xanax costs two-and-a-half cents to produce 100 tablets. and sells for $136.79… that's a markup of 569,958%.

    "doctor" = "falsify". caduceus = staff of hermes, god of thieves.

    Although the timely answer would be "politician", that misses the original concept of "snake oil sales". 

    All of today's advertising is built up to package & market an "attitude" or "lifestyle" in the form of a bottle of "snake oil". 

    Drink this and chicks will flock to you. 

    Eat this and you will be gorgeous. 

    Smoke this and you will be witty & have friends. 

    Take this pill and you will be up all night and make a real impression on your partners. 

    Or wear this and you will save the planet. 

    And since the 1960s we have all been aware of how American politics has devolved into nothing but an advertising campaign. 

    So my answer is:  Advertising & marketing.

    Joe Biden. He claims that you should just vote for him because he's "good". He says Trump lies when he's told quite a few porkies himself. He ran with Obama promising hope and change yet never delivered it. And now he claims to be some sort of saviour for the black community when it was him in 1994 that co authored the crime bill that discriminates against blacks. It classes cocaine as "crack" simply so they can go harder against poor black people than they do rich whites in the suburbs. He is a snakeoil salesmen.
