From the Op-Ed:

“As we see it, there is no legal or operational way of transforming a drug packaged for a foreign market into a drug that meets the U.S. requirements of our in-progress track-and-trace system. What’s more, there is no way to alter the law to enable importation without undermining the law’s purpose and value. …

Importation laws undermine the country’s progress in building a modern technology infrastructure to track and trace prescription drugs. Making exceptions to the in-progress track-and-trace system would ignore the many instances of drug diversion and counterfeiting that led to the creation and passage of the law in 2013.”

The Op-Ed covers the following areas:

  • State drug importation laws undermine the process that keeps our supply chain safe
  • Why the U.S. is building a track-and-trace system
  • How track-and-trace works
  • Importation undermines the track-and-trace system
  • Importation enables counterfeits
  • Forgetting the lessons
