Mary Bono Mack: On the Front Line.
Congresswoman Mary Bono Mack is speaking up after Whitney Houston's death because she believes the time is right to end prescription drug abuse. During an appearance Tuesday on CNN's “Starting Point,” Bono Mack, who serves as co-chairwoman of the Congressional Caucus on Prescription Drug Abuse, said she has a “number of items in the legislative form and some that are more conceptual, some are putting pressure on the DEA and FDA.”
“I have a prescriber education bill. I also have a bill that would limit access to OxyContin, which is one of the most powerful narcotics on the market,” she said
“Like so many others, I was deeply saddened to learn of Whitney Houston’s death. As a singer and entertainer, she was such a unique talent and had an unforgettable, once-in-a-generation voice,” said Bono Mack.
