FDA Commissioner Wants Internet Providers to Help Fight Opioids

The head of the Food and Drug Administration called on Internet providers to help rid the Web of illegal offers of prescription opioids and illicit drugs such as fentanyl that have contributed to the nation's drug crisis. Noting that Internet providers and others have taken action when the government required them to help control the spread of child pornography, FDA Commissioner Scott Gottlieb said it is time for a similar, but voluntary, response to opioids.
