ACEP Commends Congress For Passing Legislation That Addresses Drug Shortages As Well As "Bath Salts"
Date:7/2/2012

s a significant step forward to combating this new, growing trend within the war on drugs.  Dr. Seaberg adds that emergency physicians witness firsthand how these dangerous synthetic drugs are harming users.  These products contain chemicals that imitate the hallucinogenic or stimulant properties of marijuana, cocaine, ecstasy and methamphetamine, which can cause severe paranoia that may cause users to harm themselves or others.

Other provisions of the law include:

  • The GAO will conduct a study to examine the cause of drug shortages and provide recommendations to alleviate such shortages.  Specifically, the GAO must consider what extent health care providers, including hospitals and physicians, are able to adjust care effectively to compensate for the drug shortages and what impediments exist that hinder these efforts.
  • The FDA will prepare a report on current federal initiatives regarding safe use of prescription drugs with the potential for abuse and treatment of prescription drug dependence. 

ACEP is the national medical specialty society representing emergency medicine. ACEP is committed to advancing emergency care through continuing education, research and public education. Headquartered in Dallas, Texas, ACEP has 53 chapters representing each state, as well as Puerto Rico and the District of Columbia. A Government Services Chapter represents emergency physicians employed by military branches and other government agencies.
