Consumer Watchdog Outs Physicians Funding Opposition to 'Pee In A Cup' Initiative: Publishes List of Doctor Contributors To Opponents of Mandatory Physician Drug Testing

SANTA MONICA, Calif., Sept. 26, 2013 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ --The nonprofit, nonpartisan public interest group Consumer Watchdog is telling Californians about the list of physicians who have funded the opposition to a mandatory drug testing initiative for doctors.

"Substance abuse among California physicians is higher than the general population, yet unlike bus drivers and pilots, physicians don't have to take drug tests," said Jamie Court, president of Consumer Watchdog. "We think patients should know if their doctors are standing in the way of their safety and are sharing the list with millions of Californians
 through mail and email. We encourage patients to check the list for their doctors and discuss this public safety issue with them."

A proposed patient safety ballot measure requires mandatory drug testing of physicians. Learn more about the ballot measure here: http://www.consumerwatchdog.org/newsrelease/father-who-lost-young-children-files-ballot-initiative-address-patient-safety-issues-beh
