Okay I'll be fast.
Mr. Kennedy, last year at the Toronto airport I came in one night and there were these advertisements, these big, high signs about eight feet high, in bright colours, you couldn't miss them, and they said, “Humira”. Now, I know disease awareness advertisements are allowed under the current law, but this isn't a disease awareness advertisement, this is a drug advertisement.
It has the name of a very expensive drug that costs about $22,000 a year for treating rheumatoid arthritis, juvenile arthritis, and Crohn's disease. The reason they're not supposed to advertise prescription drugs is that they all have dangers and a doctor should be deciding. No one should make a decision to take a prescription drug without consulting an expert first. The adverse effects from Humira are that it can cause cancer and it can cause tuberculosis. It's definitely not a decision that you want to make while you're walking by with your suitcase in an airport.
What can we do under Vanessa's Law, or what can you do or what do you intend to do to stop drug companies from planting seeds in people's heads to try to get around their doctors so that they decide to take a drug before they know anything about it?
