US Food, Drug and Cosmetic Act

The Federal Government controls drugs in interstate commerce through the captioned act. The basic purpose of the act is to protect public health by making sure that drugs are pure, safe and effective when used as intended. The act also protects consumers from dangerous drugs, misleading labels, and fraud. This exercise of federal authority does not affect the power each state to control drugs within its own territories provided its laws are consistent with the federal law.
