How much do you know about MLMs, also known as multi level marketing? Millions of people get attracted to questionable financial schemes by flexible hours and easy money. Usually, it’s a friend’s or family member’s recommendation that gets people involved into the scheme. In reality, MLMs are pyramid schemes relying on convincing people to get ‘under’ you in the organization. All in all, MLMs are predatory schemes based on false promises and ending up in disappointment.

Pharmacy student that goes by nickname Morasuki on Tumblr hates MLMs. Her reason to hate these schemes are tied to her profession.

Morasuki said she could help the patient only because she had plenty of time on her hands to dive deep into the problem. Most doctors just don't such a luxury.
And she finished with how surprised she gets each time a patient tells her about the supplements:
