CANADA/DRUGS/FDA/PHARMA/TRUMP AS PRESIDENT: “The Trump administration said on Wednesday [7-31-19] that it was taking steps to make it easier to import less expensive prescription drugs from other countries, particularly Canada. The move has long been supported by progressives but has encountered fierce opposition from the pharmaceutical industry. The proposal would permit pilot programs developed by states, pharmacies or drug distributors that sought to safely import prescription medications from Canada. The Food and Drug Administration also planned to advise manufacturers on how they could import high-priced drugs like insulin that are sold more cheaply in other countries…The rising price of prescription drugs has been a popular topic at the Democratic presidential debates, and the timing of the administration’s announcement fell in the middle of the Tuesday-Wednesday schedule of this month’s debates for the Democratic candidates.”

CANADA/DRUGS/HHS/PHARMA/TRUMP AS PRESIDENT: “The Trump administration took a step Wednesday [7-31-19] toward allowing importation of medicines from Canada, an action the president has advocated as a way to bring cheaper prescription drugs to Americans, but the pharmaceutical industry was quick to resist the move. The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) said it and the Food and Drug Administration will propose a rule that will allow it to authorize states and other groups to pursue pilot projects related to importing drugs from Canada. The agency also said it would allow drugmakers to bring drugs that they sell more cheaply in foreign countries into the United States for sale here, an option the companies are unlikely to embrace. Capital Alpha analyst Rob Smith, in a research note, questioned why manufacturers would voluntarily lower prices in the United States to match those in Canadian or any other foreign country.”

DRUGS/MIKE PENCE/TRUMP PEOPLE: “An employee of the drug recovery center that Vice President Mike Pence abruptly withdrew from visiting agreed to plead guilty last week to federal drug trafficking charges. Jeff Hatch, who is listed as the chief business development officer at Granite State Recovery Centers, is accused of moving 1,500 grams of fentanyl, an extremely potent synthetic opioid, from Massachusetts to New Hampshire, where he then handed some of it off to an alleged area drug dealer, according to a plea agreement. Two people familiar with Pence’s cancellation said the reason for the sudden decision — which went unexplained for weeks — was a federal law enforcement investigation. It was unclear whether Hatch was the sole reason for the cancellation. The vice president’s office declined to comment on Hatch. But a person familiar with the matter said Pence was never scheduled to interact with him during his planned visit to Granite Recovery Center in Salem, New Hampshire.”
