No On 46 Campaign: New Video Raises Troubling Questions About Whether Gov't Website Will Be Ready To Meet Prop 46 Mandate
Date:9/3/2014

SACRAMENTO, Calif., Sept. 3, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Today, the statewide coalition opposed to the deeply flawed Proposition 46 released a video underscoring the numerous problems with the state-run prescription-drug database that physicians and pharmacists would have to consult under Proposition 46.
