Plavix: Are pre-schoolers allowed to write precriptions for this drug?

A few minutes ago, I saw a commercial for Plavix (a drug that can prevent future heart attacks, as per the commercial) on the CBS evening news with Katie Couric. After some seemingly “doctor” stuff, which can only impress people with IQs less than room temperature in Centigrade, not Fahrenheit, the actor Doc writes a prescription for Plavix in CAPS (PLAVIX). This made me wonder: Does the law in any state (which licenses physicians) allow kindergarderners to write prescriptions for this drug? I am now seeing the impact of a science-challenged sociey on commercial advertisement. By the way, Centigarde numbers are smaller that Fahrenheit numbers.
