New Jersey AG tries to clamp down on pharma

The AG's recommendations, as reported in the WSJ's Health Blog, are that physcians must:
  • No longer accept food from industry, whether in office or in restaurants (this includes their office staff).
  • Disclose, at the time of relicensure, whether they accepted more than $200 worth of payments and/or gifts from industry during the preceding two years.
Another AG recommendation is to curtail prescription data mining (this would require the state legislature to pass a new law).
