Marcie Edmonds, 52, of Phoenix, Arizona, pictured, was given two doses of a scorpion anti-venom called Anascorp, left, after the insect stung her in her garage last June. But the doctor didn't tell her each dose cost almost $40,000. The state's hospitals have been accused of profiteering on the drug, which costs just $100 a dose in Mexico, where it comes from.
