Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis announced a lawsuit against U.S. Food and Drug Administration saying that they had not complied with a public-records request about the state’s proposed program to import cheaper prescription drugs from Canada.
“Big Pharma is very powerful in Congress and with different people in Washington. And so, they’re able to structure this a lot of times in ways that benefit them over the average American,” said DeSantis. “We found there was a provision of law from 2003 that said states could apply to HHS to purchase drugs from Canada, and these are the same drugs that you purchase here.”
