The criminalization of science



For all you hear about the so-called Republican war on science, one should be more concerned about the left's and trial bar's war on science, which has actually cost lives. In today's Wall Street Journal, AEI's Scott Gottlieb discusses the prosecution of off-label promotion of truthful scientific claims—and, if anything, understates the problem, by focusing on Department of Justice abuses to the omission of the parasitical qui tam and plaintiffs'-bar litigation against the pharmaceutical industry and doctors over similar off-label use.

(The AEI Legal Center for the Public Interest is commissioning research into the law, economics, and public policy of off-label prescriptions and marketing. If you are interested, please contact me.)
