California Governor Gavin Newsom says the state will start producing its own insulin.
- The move will potentially lower the price of the essential treatment that can cost people with diabetes thousands of dollars a year.
- The plan will make California the first state to produce its own drugs.
- Newson explained, “Nothing epitomizes market failures more than the cost of insulin. Many Americans experience out-of-pocket costs anywhere from 300-to 500-dollars a month for this lifesaving drug. California is now taking matters into our own hands.”
