People Don’t Kill People. Deregulation Kills People.

One of the big stories up here in the Commonwealth (God save it!) is  the local pharmaceutical “compounding center” that managed to send out enough fungus-infested (Ick!) steroid  that 130 people already have contracted meningitis from the stuff, 12 of whom  have died.

The noxious potion went out to 23 states and now 13,000 souls are  waiting to see if the hammer will fall on them. The human story is heartbreaking  enough, but for our purposes here, there’s another part of the saga that’s worth  noting….

The company  has shut down, and Massachusetts health officials said Wednesday that they had  extended their investigation to Ameridose, another drug manufacturer in the  state that is partly owned by Barry Cadden, who was the chief pharmacist at New  England Compounding. Mr. Cadden surrendered his pharmacy license this week,  state officials said. Massachusetts has just five inspectors for more  than a thousand compounding pharmacies that make drugs.

FIVE inspectors. A THOUSAND facilities.

The dead hand of Big Government certainly has been lifted from these  job-creators.
