short for “Big pharmacy” big pharma is a word often used by conservatives to describe “How evil” the pharmacy industry is

Also scammers use it a lot too

One time I was scrolling through a comments section and saw a bot pretending to be a messenger for Jesus
And that they were delivering a message from him about how big pharma is pure evil and that their scam site is the holy place Jesus wants people to use

It was so ridiculous it almost felt satire
but it wasn’t
Conservative: Big pharma is evil and trump is the second coming of jesus!

Normal guy: wth are you talking about
