On September 24, 2019, the Partnership for Safe Medicines and 19 partner organizations held two congressional briefings about the real dangers counterfeit drugs pose to Americans. In all, the briefing offered a clear picture of why importation cannot solve the problem of high drug prices in the U.S. Canada does not have enough prescription drugs to share with U.S.patients, and organized crime is poised to expand the counterfeit drug trade into the U.S. to bridge the gap without regard for the health and safety of U.S. residents: “The money to be made is far too great to worry about human life.”
