My friends and colleagues at the Center for Lawful Access and Abuse Deterrence (CLAAD, @claad_coalition) are urging the public to turn off their TVs this Friday night when MSNBC airs its documentary showcasing Dr. Conrad Murray, the physician convicted for the homicide death of Michael Jackson. This evening, the organization will be issuing a national news release via PRLeap.com and updating its website with the announcement. In the meantime, you may read the CLAAD call to action here.
CLAAD is a national coalition dedicated to preventing prescription drug diversion, misuse, and abuse. Its National Prescription Drug Abuse Prevention Strategy (of which I am a primary author) sets forth recommendations for preventing overdoses resulting from intentionally wrongful prescribing, as well as prescriber and patient errors. Some 30 non-profit organizations have endorsed this year’s National Strategy.
I am proud to support CLAAD as it seeks to shun and isolate white-coat criminals like Conrad Murray. Join us tomorrow night!
