Federal Drug Cartel

We all know about the power of lobbyist in Washington, DC. The most powerful or one of the most powerful lobbying groups is the pharmaceutical, industry. It is apparent that the ambition of both the FDA and the pharmaceutical industry is to get that loot. I first recognized this with the creation of disorders by the industry just to sale drugs. Most scientists would agree that Attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (AD/HD), a disorder characterized by inappropriate levels of inattention, impulsivity, and hyperactivity, does not exist and did not exist before the pharmaceutical giants wanted to market drugs to deal with this made-up disorder.

Since then, we have seen a rapid change in the FDA and its protocols in an effort to please these drug makers. Now the industry has hired former U.S. Congressman Billy Tauzin (R-La) to be president of the Pharmaceutical Research and Manufacturers of America. He was a 13 term congressman and the former chair of the Energy and Commerce committee. It is the oldest legislative standing committee in the U.S. House of Representatives and takes the lead on matters relating to the promotion of commerce and to the public’s health as well as other issues.

My concern is that 20% of FDA scientist have reported being forced to approve drugs they were unsure about with an additional third being unconfident in the FDA to assure the public safety regarding drugs being placed on the open market. With the apprehension and trepidation associated with Celebrex, Viox, and Naproxene, one can see why the scientist feels this way. Even the drugs used to treat the made up disorders mentioned above are problematic, often resulting in condition like narrow angle glaucoma. Add to this the new approach of direct marketing via television, we are creating an environment were drugs are going to be releassed before they are proven safe.

Then there is RU486, the drug that is supposed to trigger abortions within 48 hours of conception. It was released under an expedited approval system, a system that is supposed to be only employed with life saving drugs.

The FDA is not protecting the public safety of the American citizen but rather making profits for the pharmaceutical industry. The war on drugs should be redirected toward the FDA for they are the biggest drug dealers I am aware of. They may be using the DEA to get rid of the competition because from this individual’s purview, they should be the federal drug cartel, a title more accurate than the Federal Drug Administration.
