Crack Down on Opioids & Treat Addiction
For too long, America has struggled to find a balance between pain control and the scourge of opioid addiction. As a former Medical Board Director and Officer with the USFDA, Dr. Mehta has taken millions of illegally distributed opioids from bad pharmaceutical companies off our pharmacy shelves and has cracked down on bad doctors. He understands deeply that America needs an action plan that not only coordinates federal and state efforts to crackdown on illicit drugs, but that also protects the treatment of veterans and patients along with the doctors and nurses who care for them. Dr. Mehta’s Opioid Action Plan (OAP) will develop model guidelines for State Medical Boards that (1) provide a fair and balanced approach to prosecuting doctors for overprescribing pain medications while mitigating access issues for patients who are suffering from intractable pain and diseases, (2) will protect coordination between local and federal law enforcement officers involved in cracking down on illicit narcotics flowing through our borders and (3) will vote to eliminate U.S. foreign aid to countries that foster socialist governments run on narco trafficking.
