An investigation led by former Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) Director Louis J. Freeh found that Congressional drug importation proposals would increase the threat of illegitimate products entering the United States, worsen the opioid epidemic, and overburden law enforcement and government regulators. The report, Report on the Potential Impact of Drug Importation Proposals on U.S. Law Enforcement, focuses on the impact of drug importation on law enforcement’s ability to protect the US from substandard, adulterated, counterfeit, and diverted pharmaceuticals.
Current and former law enforcement officials from the FBI, Food and Drug Administration (FDA), Drug Enforcement Administration, as well as state and local law enforcement were interviewed as part of the investigation. The report includes recommendations to improve and enhance existing law enforcement capacity to prevent counterfeit drugs from entering the US drug supply, and ensure law enforcement has sufficient resources, expertise, and authority to protect the public health and integrity of the US drug supply. Additional information is provided in a press release.
