This Legal Backgrounder examines the Say No to Drug Ads Act proposed to end the tax deductibility of direct-to-consumer (DTC) prescription drug advertising. After evaluating the SNDAA's policy implications and its impact on free commercial speech, the publication concludes that the legislation would be unsound and unconstitutional if passed into law.
