Cohen’s Curry & Chardonnay

Cohen’s Curry & Chardonnay

It had to happen. As I had revealed, and as was confirmed by his pharmacists, Sam Cohen’s Indian Curries never existed. So what did he do? Afraid that he would be charged over fraud and misleading conduct, Sam Cohen decided to mix something fast. He called it a ‘Chardonnay’ because he had asked his pharmacist to include grape-seed extract within the Minoxidil. After the first pharmacist’s lawyers confirmed that the Curries had never existed, Sam Cohen went in search of a new pharmacist and presented himself as the guru of hair regrowth. He asked his new pharmacist (who was not aware that the former pharmacist had dumped Sam Cohen) to inject a mysterious liquid into the Minoxidil solution. After a short period, his pharmacist was not comfortable with this request, and he stopped handling that Chardonnay.

How dare Mr Cohen expect a compounding pharmacist to take a mysterious liquid and mix it with Minoxidil? What was that new solution? Had it been clinically tested? Was it safe? Is Mr Cohen licensed to mix such potions? Is it legal for Mr Cohen to inject his liquid inside a Scheduled Poison? Did he have TGA approval? Did the prescribing doctor know that the client was being given new, unnamed, untested, chemicals? Sam sends some (not all) clients to their GP. He asks the GP to prescribe Minoxidil. And then Sam wants to tamper with the prescription. On which side of the law does this farce reside? If a client has a prescription for Minoxidil, what gives Sam Cohen the right to interfere with the prescription and ask the pharmacist to include vitamins A and/or B as well as grape-seed extracts, including his mysterious rubbish? What kind of irregularity is that!

It was an act of desperation that is best described as ‘out of the frypan and into the fire’. Mr Cohen was so desperate to come up with something in order to divert any investigation into his alleged scam, I believe he mixed something that was totally useless and ineffective. It would not surprise me if it turned out to be water and food colouring. While trying to prove that the curries do exist (useless as they are) I believe that Mr Sam Cohen was breaking one law in order to escape being convicted of breaking another. He has already been found to be endangering the lives of his clients, and now the Health Department has served him and the ‘Institute of Hair Regrowth and Beauty’ with a Permanent Prohibition Order. So what was he hoping to achieve?

How do I know that his Chardonnay was utterly useless? His former second pharmacist told me so! Mr Sam Cohen had approached the former second pharmacist, saying that he had 40 years of experience, and that IHRB has many satisfied clients, and that the Chardonnay solution contained his special Curries that allegedly made all the difference. At first, his former second pharmacist had no reason to suspect Mr Cohen was lying. Sam had asked the pharmacist to also add vitamins and grape-seed extract, which, the pharmacist said, were not Sam’s intellectual property and provided no active ingredients. The pharmacist also said that he stopped mixing Sam’s secret Chardonnay solution when he realised that it did not serve a therapeutic effect, and also because the Chardonnay was affecting the stability of the Minoxidil.

So dear reader, it’s one long endless story of deception. For years, Sam Cohen has been charging astronomical prices. For example, a $70 bottle of Minoxidil is sold by Sam Cohen for $900. He justified this by saying that his bottles contained special Indian Curries that made him the champion in the hair regrowth industry. The real cosmetic effects and hair regrowth never came from these curries because they never existed. Clients who did find some success, did so through the Minoxidil (which does work for some people, and which can be purchased from any chemist at a fraction of the price, and as low as $13 on the internet). IHRB clients also found some success because Sam Cohen had overdosed them on non-approved dangerous medications such as Loniten. However, to justify his rip-off and his $4,900 starting price, along with on-going costs for medications and topical solutions at exorbitant prices, Sam Cohen had always said that he had special herbs, natural extracts, curries, and spices. When I proved that they never existed, he mixed a batch of something that his pharmacist told me contained no active ingredients. In effect, it was a useless liquid.

Well Mr Cohen, if you want to claim that you have special Indian Curries, how do you explain that now all three pharmacists with whom you have dealt, say that these curries do not exist, and that the solution you invented recently, contains no active ingredients and no therapeutic effect? Where are your clinical trials? How can you be mixing anything or touching medications when the Health Care Complaints Commission has slapped you with a Permanent Prohibition Order after the police raid that found you in possession of drugs and poisons that you were never permitted to touch?

This news verges on mind-boggling. A phantom-useless-mysterious-secret-Indian-Curry inside a Chardonnay (whatever that means) now has to make its way (magically through the ether) into a bottle that Sam Cohen is not allowed to touch or see or order or recommend or compound or have anyting to do with. This is Harry Potter territory.

Dear Mr Cohen. At first, you had no curries at all. Now you are legally forbidden from handling prescriptions or medications in any shape or form; in any way whatsoever. So the big question is, how can you inject ‘nothing’ into bottles you cannot touch nor have anything to do with? Riddle me that, please! Or do you want the pharmacists to break the law for you?
