Drug Policy

Opioid Epidemic - According to the CDC, prescriptions for opioids have quadrupled from 1999-2010 despite no change in the overall amount of pain that Americans are reporting. Recommendations include better prescription practices. However, marijuana has been shown to be effective for pain-management and is not addictive. Wider legalization would reduce incidence of opioid abuse, reducing deaths of Americans.

Drug Policy

One thing the Senate can do right now is pass the Lower Drug Costs Now Act, which would cap prescription drug costs for our seniors on Medicare.  We need to take on the pharmaceutical and insurance companies that dominate our healthcare system. Senator Cassidy has taken millions from private companies who are only looking out for themselves. I support legislation that will lower the cost of prescription drugs and allow for the federal government to negotiate with pharmaceutical companies to bring down prices.
