Rep. Tulsi Gabbard on Facebook: Opioid Crisis Accountability Act

May 9, 2018
Press Release

"The opioid epidemic has ravaged every corner of our nation—leaving no community unscathed. As millions of families have suffered the heartache and devastation of this crisis, drug companies like Purdue Pharma, the maker of OxyContin, have raked in billions of dollars every year. These companies have lied, deceived, and swindled the American people through false marketing and distribution just to sell more pills. We must hold Big Pharma and their leaders accountable for promoting and profiting from the opioid epidemic. @SenatorBernieSanders and I are introducing the Opioid Crisis Accountability Act to prohibit and penalize drug companies for false marketing and distribution of opioids, and create criminal liability for top company executives. It’s time for those responsible to pay the price for their actions."-TG
