NACDS Praises U.S. Senator Schumer for Introduction of

          Bipartisan Legislation to Help Curb Organized Theft of Medical Products

The National Association of Chain Drug Stores (NACDS) today sent a letter to U.S. Senator Charles E. Schumer (D-NY) thanking him for his leadership in introducing and advancing S. 1002, the "Strengthening and Focusing Enforcement to Deter Organized Stealing and Enhance Safety Act of 2011," also called the "SAFE DOSES Act."
The letter cites the importance of the bill in the fight against the organized theft of medical products, specifically prescription drugs, biologicals, devices and infant formula. The bipartisan bill aims to provide law enforcement with critical tools to break up sophisticated crime rings that harm consumers by attempting to resell stolen medical products on the black market.

"Your timely legislation comes amid concerns that criminal organizations are increasingly targeting prescription drugs and other medical products, and particularly goods in transit, because of the high value of shipments. It would combat this type of theft by increasing penalties, stiffening sentences for these crimes, making theft of medical products a predicate for the Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations (RICO) law, as well as providing law enforcement officials with additional mechanisms to fight dangerous crime rings," NACDS stated in its letter to the Senator.

"We commend you again for introducing and advancing strong bipartisan legislation that will assist healthcare providers, retailers and law enforcement combat the serious problem of organized theft of medical products and we look forward to working with you to enact this important legislation," the letter concluded.
