My Letter to the Editor of the Bucks County Courier Times regarding 24/7 drug drop-off boxes was published today. I sent this letter to the editor via email on October 4, 2017. In it I state unequivocally that I am "NOT in favor" of suing drug companies to pay for opioid-related expenses. I suggested, however, that drug companies should help fund efforts such as drug drop-off boxes. I also believe opioid-producing drug companies should help with educational programs to prevent over-prescribing of opioids by physicians (something the FDA has advocated), inform consumers about alternative treatments for pain when appropriate, etc.
