On September 21, 2012, the Senate approved H.R. 4223, the Safe Doses Act, which seeks to combat theft of prescription drugs and other medical products. In particular, the legislation would: increase sentences for the theft, transportation, and storage of medical product cargo; enhance penalties for knowingly obtaining stolen medical products for resale into the supply chain; increase sentences when injury or death results from use of the product or where the defendant is employed by an organization in the supply chain for the pre-retail medical product; expand law enforcement tools such as wiretaps; and provide restitution to victims injured by stolen medical products. The bill, which was approved by the House in June, now is cleared for the President’s signature.
