I have never seen so many drugstores (pharmacies) at one place. There are hundreds one by one in Tijuana's downtown and around. Do the locals need so many drugs?

NO, the drugstores are built for U.S. citizens. What? Yes,
drugs (medicines) are much more cheaper in Mexico than in the USA, am I wrong? And it's legal to buy and import drugs to the USA although only for personal use and only if prescribed by American (not Mexican) doctors. Hmm... don't they like Mexican doctors hehe? Or they just close the market for them.

Review Helpfulness: 2.5 out of 5 stars
