Pharmaceutical company caught lobbying lawmakers for a law to benefit its business interests, backs down to spare its public image

Merck is a Johnson & Johnson partner company which has been lobbying lawmakers to mandate the use of their new product Gardasil. Recently Merck decided to stop this questionable practice.

The company said it made the decision after re-evaluating its lobbying program, which has generated fierce debate with some religious organizations saying it could encourage promiscuity and parents groups questioning the need for such a widespread vaccination program.

It would be nice to see the Johnson & Johnson Company learn that lesson.

A drug company which lobbies lawmakers to mandate the use of their alternative nicotine products by funding smoking ban efforts via the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation (RWJF) is no less offensive. It is dishonest, deceiptful, and borders on racketeering as far as I'm concerned.......I hope the media and lawmakers wake up to this disgusting practice before it's too late.
