John F. Kennedy on Drugs

 


Crack down on the illicit sale of habit-forming drugs

A strong America cannot neglect the aspirations of its citizens--the welfare of the needy, the health care of the elderly, the education of the young.

To protect our consumers from the careless and the unscrupulous, I shall recommend improvements in the Food and Drug laws-strengthening inspection and standards, halting unsafe and worthless products, preventing misleading labels, and cracking down on the illicit sale of habit-forming drugs.
