Most Californians Support A Measure To Obtain State Discounts On Drugs
The pharmaceutical industry may be losing a heated battle over drug prices in California. A poll released earlier this week found that two-thirds of Californians support an initiative that would require drug makers to offers discounts to state health programs.
