This Month's Refill: Bringing Awareness to the Michigan Anti-Smurfing Campaign
On June 7th, Mills Owner and Pharmacist, Pierre Boutros, welcomed Michigan Attorney General Bill Schuette, Oakland County Sheriff Mike Bouchard and Eric Liu of the Michigan Pharmacists Association (MPA) for a press conference on Michigan’s role in the fight against Methamphetamine production. Pierre and the rest of the group outlined a campaign aimed at increasing public awareness about the criminal enterprise known as “smurfing”: The act of buying cold and allergy medicines containing pseudoephedrine (PSE), such as Allegra-D and Advil Cold and Sinus, on behalf of criminals who intend to use these products for meth production.
The recently launched Anti-Smurfing Campaign is an educational effort that targets buyers of cold and allergy medicine where it will have the most impact — at the pharmacy counter. The campaign will partner with retailers and pharmacies who will post targeted awareness and educational materials, including warning signs and posters to raise consumer awareness about the risks associated with smurfing. Mills Pharmacy was honored to host this important press event and to serve as an example of responsible and safe pharmaceutical practices.
