The false advertising has even swayed our President:

Speaking of Constitutional powers, from the article:

"The ban, which the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) will impose through regulatory "guidance" it plans to issue soon..."

All legislative power was granted to Congress, but somehow, FDA bureaucrats can "ban" things they think should be banned. Angry

And more false advertising by a government official:

"Bad science and panics by those who want to escalate the opioid drug war."
