Refers to Dialogue: “Then he worked out this whole thing with druggists”
Time: 00:11:00
Truth Value:

Brinkley indeed had this “network of druggists”: the Brinkley Pharmaceutical Association, who stocked Brinkley medicines. People who listened to Medical Question Box would be told which medicine to take for what ailment, and they could visit any number of “official” Brinkley medicine purveyors to buy them.
