MA Bill Would Allow Big Pharma to Host Physician Dinner Parties

I’d love to know what makes these dinner parties “aggressive” marketing efforts. Molly Gamble in Becker’s Hospital Review:

“Sen. Anthony Petruccelli says Senate Bill 1849 would drive business to local restaurant owners that have been hit by the recession. Opponents to the bill gathered at the State House, calling the bill an attempt to weaken the gift ban law that was passed two years ago. They say these often-lavish dinner parties aren’t benevolent gatherings but aggressive marketing tools that increase healthcare costs.”

Curious? http://www.beckershospitalreview.com/hospital-financial-and-business-news/massachusetts-bill-would-allow-drugmakers-to-hold-dinner-parties-for-physicians.html
