Chiropractors prescribing meds?

Just finished reading an interesting article title "Medication Primer for Alternative Health Care Practitioners" by a surgeon who went through the basics of medicine and what is commonly used for various conditions. We're seeing more of this in our journals/literature, and some factions within our profession think this is where we're heading, merging with traditional medicine and potentially prescribing certain medications. We use herbals and supplements and refer patients for medication management, but haven't taken a position on this matter. What do you think? Would it be beneficial for you to have your Chiropractor able to prescribe certain medications? ... or do you think we have enough medications and our profession should stay 'drug free'?
