Handouts to Manufacturers Will Not Curb Opioid Abuse Epidemic

WASHINGTON - A provision tucked into a U.S. House of Representatives bill to address opioid addiction is nothing but an expensive handout to the pharmaceutical industry that will do little to address the epidemic, Public Citizen said in a letter to Congress.

Lawmakers in the conference committee for the Comprehensive Addiction and Recovery Act are scheduled to meet on Wednesday, July 6, for the first time to discuss the bill.
