Sec. 2. Effective date. This Act takes effect on January 1, 2020.
This bill amends current law, which allows the advertising of prescription drugs only if the advertisement is not misleading, to ban completely, beginning January 1, 2020, the advertising of prescription drugs, either by broadcast by a television or radio station in this State, over the Internet from a location in this State or in a magazine or newspaper printed, distributed or sold in this State. A violation is a violation of the Maine Unfair Trade Practices Act.
