Bay State bans drugco gifts to doctors

My lede:

Rules approved in March by the Massachusetts Public Health Council bar drug- and device-makers from providing gifts to physicians and require them to publicly disclose most payments to doctors exceeding $50.

The new regulations implement a state law enacted last year and bar industry gifts such as pens, notepads and food in physician offices. The restrictions are meant to reduce health care costs and physician conflicts of interest.

The whole shebang.
