Since 2010, Bernier has been cooking his own drugs with locally sourced chemicals and selling them at his local farmer's market to rave reviews.

"I can't keep any of my prescriptions in stock," exclaims Bernier. "My version of methocarbamol is usually sold out by 10am and my trio of pain killers gets bought up even before that."
