Prescription drugs that is. According to the IMS Institute for Healthcare Informatics, in 2010 U.S. Spending on medicines grew 2.3 percent to $307.4 billion.

(The most popular drug was Vicodin, an opioid prescribed to treat chronic pain, with a massive 131.2 million prescriptions!  I'm sure all those prescriptions were completely genuine of course.)
