Minn. Attorney General Demands EpiPen Maker Turn Over Sales Data

MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — Minnesota Attorney General Lori Swanson has joined the growing line of elected officials looking into huge price hikes for the EpiPen injector used by people with life-threatening allergies.

In a letter this week to Mylan pharmaceuticals, Swanson cited federal and state antitrust laws as the authority behind her demand for the company’s pricing and sales data since 2007 — including its sales to Minnesota schools.

Swanson also asked that the information be turned over by Sept. 20 together with a sworn statement attesting to its validity.

    Don’t blame drug companies, blame our politicians who will not let medications from Canada or any other counties that are just like what we get in the US. . You will see Frankin and Klobacher saying it is so bad but they do nothing in congress about letting drugs come into the country because there party is in bed with the drug companies
