The meeting, sponsored by King Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (NYSE: KG), brought together more than 100 participants, including U.S. regulators from the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), Food and Drug Administration (FDA), Department of Transportation (DOT), and Office of National Drug Control Policy (ONDCP), as well as state and local officials, industry groups, and advocacy organizations to share their expertise and insights on current legal and regulatory challenges facing drug disposal.
