Too many prescription drugs and medical devices are being approved by the F.D.A with too little data on how safe or effective they are. So, the F.D.A. is failing the American people. Furthermore, too many other products — for example, those containing CBD or THC, ingredients found in the marijuana plant — are being sold with no apparent oversight at all.
