Victims of Fake Medicines Tell Their Stories

On January 31, Twenty-one members of the trade group, the Partnership for Safe Medicines, based in San Francisco, hosted congressional briefings to allow victims of fake medicines and their families to tell their stories in Washington.

Also speaking were retired law enforcement officers representing the DEA and the National Sheriffs’ Association who spoke of the dangers from counterfeit drugs in their jurisdictions and efforts to combat them. Javier Peña and Steve Murphy, retired DEA agents portrayed in the Netflix series NARCOS, spoke about their experiences with drug cartels, counterfeits and opioids on a panel with former Assistant United States Attorney Samuel J. Louis and former Canadian Border Patrol agent Don Bell.
