The experimental medicines are administered by licensed physicians. No charge is made to the patients. While the experimental medicines qualify as "medicines," the raw materials are not resold because the medicines are not resold. The raw materials are consumed by the taxpayer in the process of developing new medicines. Accordingly, tax applies to the raw materials. 4/2/94. (Am. 2002–2).
